Description
Banded agat intaglio mounted in an 18 karat gold ring.

Selene was the ancient goddess of the moon and of hunting. Daughter of Hyperion and Theia, Selene's name comes from selas, "bright light". She is usually depicted being drawn by a pair of winged horses harnessed to a chariot, the moon rising above her head like a halo. Often the subject of romantic poetry, this captivating goddess makes a striking image on this ancient stone intaglio. The natural banding of the stone accentuates the masterful carving of this radiant and evocative goddess. The wearer of this stunning ring will most certainly radiate a bright and magical presence not unlike that of the ancient luminescent goddess herself.
