Brass Plated With Sterling Silver Rectangular Georgian Inspired Cameo Ring

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 third of many to come :

Inspired by an old black and white agate rectangular ring I used to own from the Georgian Period.....

This unique cameo ring is now cast in solid brass and plated in sterling silver...

The face of the ring features a lovely woman's profile, great detail shows her headband embellished with a forget me not flower, and her long hair elegantly upswept into a bun. Her modest clothing, graceful features and the lines of her hair are all present as well...

The rings rectangular top measures 1' by 3/4', the depth of the cameo, surface, and ornate base of the top measures 10mm's thick for a great multi-dimensional view from the side...

This ring has a very gothic feeling...

Also available in sterling silver,14 kt gold vermeil over sterling silver, and brass plated in 14 kt gold..........any of which could also be antiqued or high polished.........please ask me if you have any questions...

Shown solo in the first three pictures and with the 14 kt gold vermeil over brass version in the last two pictures...
