This antique glass intaglio has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring.

From the Renaissance onward, there was a pasion in Europe for the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. In the later 18th century, this movement culminated in the neoclassic style, where the tastes of those vanished civilizations were echoed in art, furniture, clothing and jewelry. This masterufl gem was carved in a manner that exactly evokes the artistry of the Classical world, and may originally have passed as a genuine antiquity. In a timeless setting of modern gold, it is a splendid reminder of an undying fascination with the past. - (FJ.2686)
