Cameos have their own story to tell, usually reflective of the imagery they represent. As far back as 15,000 BC, petroglyphs(figures carved into rock) were used to record significant events and communicate information. In ancient times people used cameos to depict an ethic/moral, or to make a statement about their faith or loyalties. In fact, at different points in history cameos have been worn as frequently by men. In this 12th collection each piece varies from Greek and Roman mythology, biblical event's, women, men, living heroes or rulers, and so much more given in greater detail by their individual titles.
Here is the sixth of many to come :
Inspired by an old black and white agate rectangular ring I used to own from the Victorian Period...
This unique cameo ring is now cast in solid sterling silver with a 18 kt gold vermeil...
The face of the ring features the Greek warrior Perseus's profile, great detail shows his helmut, beard, and jacket. The sides are also lightly etched.
The rings rectangular top measures 14mm's by 10mm's the depth of the cameo, surface, and ornate base of the top measures 6 mm's thick for a great multi-dimensional view from the side...
This ring would be great as a pinky ring....
Also available in sterling silver, brass plated in sterling silver (7th piece available for $90), and brass plated in 18 kt gold (8th piece available for $90).........any of which could also be antiqued or high polished.........please ask me if you have any questions...
