Checkerboard Cameo Ring

$390.00

The star of Collection No. 8.  A hand carved Carnelian intaglio set into a sleek sculpted form.  Our modern take on the antique.  We've chosen to pair Carnelian, a favored material in ancient cameos, with its tonal counterpart, 18k rose gold.

This style is also available without the carving, creating a beautiful stone topped signet. For the plain stone we offer Lapis and Carnelian (Bloodstone is also available upon request).  We have chosen both Carnelian and Bloodstone for their richness, but also their durability.  It's hard to resist the brilliant of Lapis, but we recommend wearing it more as an occasional ring.  Lapis measures a 5.5 on the Mohs scale, while Carnelian and Bloodstone measure a 7 (on a scale on a diamond being the hardest at a 10).

The stone measures 16mm in diameter and sits slightly raised, with a beveled edge, above the setting.
