Circa 1880s, 18k, Possibly Italian. Featuring a finely carved carnelian scarab with a Roman-style intaglio seal held in an elegantly classic mounting by two leonine heads. This captivating ring is a delightful example of 19th-century architectural revival jewelry. The richly hued, burnt orange stone is drilled through the center as this was the most common method of setting in the ancient world. The owner could spin the stone to use the seal on the bottom. Beautifully re-made, this ring is in excellent condition.

Stone Details: Finely carved Victorian Carnelian scarab with Roman-style intaglio on the reverse.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "Four thousand years of chic and pyramids too."
