Striking Art Deco 10K yellow gold synthetic ruby ring. This is a superb example of a men's intaglio ring. The synthetic ruby has the image of a warrior carved into it, and is faceted on the back. The stone is set in a masculine 10K gold setting. The ring is a size 10.5, and the top of the ring measures 20mm long. The band is stamped 10K on the inside. Men's intaglio rings are generally carved in hematite or black onyx, rarely do you see one in a synthetic ruby. This very special ring, from the Art Deco period, c. 1920, is in excellent condition.
