Description

Ancient Roman Putto intaglio ring. Centrally set with an oval cornelian intaglio in a closed back rubover setting carved with a full length profile of a winged Putto, depicted holding a harp within a dashed border, to a substantial signet ring featuring a raised border and smooth surround, the broad integrated shoulders flowing through to a solid shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 12g in weight, circa 2nd century AD, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.

Putto are thought to have derived from the Greek god Eros or Roman god Cupid, the male companion of goddess of love Aphrodite. Often depicted with wings they are commonly associated with romance, love and peace.
