Roman-era Silver Ring, Carnelian Fortuna Intaglio, c. 3rd Cent AD
Silver, 9.3gm, Ring size 8, carnelian intaglio 18mm/14mm (minor crack at 6-7 o'clock), long hunched-shoulder type.
Ground-found in the Balkans, this ring may or may not have been made in the Balkans, but the carnelian intaglio of Fortuna (seated left, holding wheat ear and cornucopia, rudder berore) is certainly in a Roman Provincial style.
Fully restored to 'as new' condition by a master sliver smith (not us), this ring is now simply exquiste.
Seller's Note/ Rings were made to we worn, my friends...and we had it restored for Sheri to wear, but she's a practical girl and has decided to let it go. (She's rather have the dough to buy a new macro under-water lens...chicks.)
Be sure to click the 'images tab' for the before 'as received' ring and to see Sheri modeling it on her finger.
