There is a particular charm to this ring because it holds a message that expresses a feeling of love or a feeling of sadness. It is as popular today as it was during the Victorian Era. It is one of our favorite themes and we hope it appeals to our Ruby Lane visitors.
The fine hardstone cameo sits in an unmarked but tested 15K mounting that will fit a ring size finger of 6 1/2. Very classy and in lovely condition. It appears, from a study of antique jewelry, that jewelry of this nature goes from the height of idealism to the depths of sentimentality and romantic attitudes that were part of Victorian life.
Among the favorite forms of cameo jewelry are from onyx, sardonyx and agate which came in layers of different colors. This is an excellent example of this type of cameo. The workmanship is imaginative, yet simple. This design has been featured in many forms of Victorian jewelry whether it be memorial, sentimental or romantic. We continue to search for examples wherever or whenever possible.
