Late 1800s Victorian Roman Soldier Intaglio Signet Ring, Carved Glass, 10K Gold
Hand Carved Black Glass
Late 1800s. Intaglio possibly earlier.
US Size 7 (could be resized in the 6 - 9 range for $50)
Good. One small chip to intaglio. Shank slightly oval from having been sized down at some point-- perfectly comfortable though.
An impressive late Victorian signet ring with a hand cut black glass intaglio of a Roman soldier. The sideways orientation of the intaglio is unusual for a Victorian ring, but is consistent with the ancient Roman motif (most ancient intaglio rings were set with this orientation). In 10K gold.
