Description
In imperial Rome, members of the royal court and the nobility often wore portraits of the emperor engraved on gems. Such tokens identified the political allegiance of the wearer and were sometimes given by the ruler himself as marks of special favor. The noble profile on this exquisite seal bears a strong resemblance to Trojan, whose reign marked the beginning of Rome’s golden age. Set in a dazzling ring of classic design, it is certain to make whoever wears it feel like Royalty. - (FJ.3491)
