An ancient Roman carnelian intaglio representing Jupiter, seated and holding a staff in his right hand, Nike or Victory is balanced on his left arm. An eagle stands at his feet at the ground line. The intaglio dates to the 1st or 2nd century AD, is mounted in a 15k gold ring dating to the late Georgian period. The late 18th to early 19th century setting is highly decorative, with a reeded band decorated with scrolls and volutes terminating in a fleur de lys pattern at the shoulders. The curved, open back setting sits comfortably on the finger while allowing light to shine through.

This was most likely a gentleman’s ring, given the size, design and subject matter, dating from 1780 to early 1800s, approximately. The size of the intaglio and the style of the setting are equally appropriate for a man or woman today. The intaglio is Roman from the 1st or 2nd century AD. A similar ring mount is pictured in the Koch Collection of Rings by Anna Chadour, #1217.

Condition: the ring mount is in excellent condition. The intaglio has a chip, filled with gold at the front, and more visible in the back. This was its condition when mounted.

The ring is unmarked but tests as 15k gold, the setting is probably English

Size US 7.5 and can be sized up or down within reason
