Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This gorgeous intaglio ring is absolutely exceptional. From the Victorian period, this lovely ring has a large, oval shaped carnelian with an intaglio carved into the center. The hand carved image portrays the Lady Hope resting against a large anchor. The carnelian stone is bezel set in a bold 14kt yellow gold mounting and has wonderful, rich orange color which compliments the yellow gold setting beautifully. The inside of the ring is marked "14K" along with a makers mark. The ring is a size 6.75 but could easily be re-sized. It's a fantastic piece and would make a stunning addition to any collection!
