Description

Ancient Roman blue glass intaglio ring. Set vertically with an oval blue glass intaglio depicting a woman leaning on a column, in a closed back rubover setting, framed to either side with two beads of gold, flowing to a rounded shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 2.72g in weight, circa 1st-2nd century AD, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.

The intaglio set in this ring is carved with minute precision, each line building up the image which is crisply executed. This is a museum quality ring, and a very skilful example of Ancient Roman craftsmanship and is in fine condition, commensurate with its age.
