With rose diamond surround mounted in 18ct gold; rectangular cameo depicting a classical figure possibly Ceres.
This piece was made in the 1960s and is in the style of a ring design popular during the period circa 1890-1910.
Cameo is a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised relief image, usually a portrait. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, cameo only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background. Cameo is also referred to for any other raised decoration set against a different coloured ground, such as for example in porcelain making and thinking about Wedgwood cameos in particular.

Size : ring's face : 1.8 cm. ( 0 45/64" ) x 1 cm. ( 0 25/64" ). Weight of ring : 5g. Shank's inner diameter : 18.1mm.

This piece has also been independently appraised.
