An outstanding Victorian cameo ring featuring a sizable slab of onyx, carved with a phenomenal figure of a dancing woman, with her veil a-flutter. Diamonds decorate all eight prongs that loft this sculptural treasure, terminating in a massive 14ct shank, decorated with Greek key design elements, that underscore the neoclassical effect of the piece. A superb addition to any cameo or historical jewel focused collection!
Age/Origin: American, 1880
Marks: 14K [incised, inner shank surface]
Condition: Overall very good, with only minor and typical age wear. This is an all original ring. Fine, detailed carving makes up the cameo portrait, having held up beautifully over the many years.
