ABOUT THIS RING
Intriguing. Who is this balding gent? Perhaps a locket would not do and he wanted his beloved to have a carved portraiture of him close at hand. And it is a striking one, indeed. Intricately hand carved in high-contrasting black & white onyx, the cameo is presented in a gleaming 14K yellow gold frame and elegantly accented by flared split shoulders. Engraved on the reverse with, “Carolan to Etheldruida Sept. 1898." Currently ring size 8 1/2.
