The minimalist twin to our Checkerboard Cameo Ring. A hand cut, flat top, beveled cabochon, bezel set into a sleek sculpted band. Our modern take on the antique. We suggest pairing the Carnelian, a favored material in ancient cameos, with tonal rose gold. Pair the Bloodstone or Lapis with sterling, for a crisp, rich duo.
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 the beveled edge, above the setting.
