This fine intaglio, 15 karat gold ring is English circa 1860-1880. The intaglio ( carving in stone) is of the Order of the Garter, given to those as the highest honor of chivalry for serving Britain or the Crown. This emblem was founded by Edward 111 in 1348.
The chalcedony intaglio is set in a lovely bezel with the original, substantial, finely engraved shank. The chalcedony is semi-transparent and a mellow pale gray. The ring can be worn by both men and women as it has a wonderful scale, is understated and elegant.
It is a size 9 1/2 and can easily be sized as the engraving does not surround the back of the shank. It is completely original and in superb condition.
It weighs an impressive 4.9 grams.
It is perfect worn alone or stacked with other period rings. Perfect for a man or woman.
England, circa 186-1880.
