This genuine Ancient Roman carnelian intaglio
has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold
ring set with 69 genuine diamonds weighing a
total of 3.12 carats.
This lovely roman gem depicts two of the most
prominent deities of the classical world. Athena,
called Minerva by the Romans, was Goddess of
wisdom and war. She is shown wearing armor
and holding aloft the laurel wreath of victory.
Fortuna, goddess of luck and success, holds the
cornucopia, the horn of plenty signifying wealth
and abundance. The person who wore this
superb intaglio at the height of the Roman
Empire must surely have triumphed in all of life's
endeavors. The person fortunate enough to wear
it today in its magnificent jeweled setting is
certain to enjoy a triumph all their own.
