An English ring, early Georgian period, in high karat gold (18), closed-back set with a carved carnelian intaglio of Roman head in profile.

The verso of the mounting has a rayed, or basket back, and the sides of the central mounting have a twisted rope design between two ribs.

The shank terminates in a curved split cornucopia at the shoulders.

The stone is earlier than the 1700’s mounting and shank.

This ring is approximately size 9 ½.
