Description
The regal lady depicted on this gem may be the Empress Faustina, wife of Marcus Aurelius, or perhaps her daughter, Lucilla. “The delicate carving conveys the image of a beautiful woman used to the privileges of rank and yet still modest. A ring for someone sure of a pplace in the world. - (FJ.1349)
