An unusual gents intaglio dress ring crafted from yellow gold and set with a carved deep red carnelian. The round twisted wire shank has split flow up shoulders which connect to the rubover set intaglio carnelian which depicts what appears to be a knight's head. Whilst unmarked we have had this piece tested and it is 9 karat yellow gold, therefore likely English in manufacture. The carnelian measures 18.55mm in diameter and is in good condition with only some minor scuffs to the surface, commensurate with age. A really beautiful gents ring and a piece which is almost certainly unique in design.
