I have studied this beautiful ring for some time and enlisted the help of a jewelry designer and GIA gemologist. It is 18k yellow gold with a center intaglio carved in mother of pearl. The figure is Hebe, the goddess of youth, or the prime of life. She is the daughter of Zeus and his older sister, Hera. Hebe was the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, serving their nectar and ambrosia until she married Heracles. (from Wikipedia). I was surprised this was Mother of Pearl but upon verification and more research I found a few similar pieces of jewelry with various carved designs. This is an intricately carved piece and absolutely fascinating, surrounded by small blue sapphires, it is truly a fabulous piece of the past. Ring size is U.S. 6.25, UK M. The oval intaglio measures 17 x 9 x 2mm. Wonderful condition, Victorian piece.
