Antique mid Victorian 14k rose gold (strong pink color) high relief blueish grey lava cameo ring size 6. Hand made ring, hand engraved bezel, with a bezel set hand carved genuine blue lava cameo of a young woman facing right and in very high relief- very scarce. The split shank is comprised of three pieces of gold wire and the ring shank has never been cut or sized. Measures 9/16" x 3/4", the cameo measures 13/16" x 1/2" x 5/16", the ring weighs 6.8 grams. The band tapers to 2.5mm at the back of the ring shank. Typical of the majority of authentic antique Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the piece is not gold hallmarked, but it has been carefully tested by two separate independent jewelers for karat fineness. In outstanding extremely well babied condition with no repairs or alterations to note. Circa mid 1800s.
