Here’s a wonderful coral cameo ring, and it’s something a man could wear.

The subject appears to be a handsome Roman or Greek from antiquity.

It was common to use classical subjects in cameos of the 19th century – as it was in the Renaissance, the first great period for ancient revivalist jewellery.

The colour is intense, the condition excellent and the cameo is beautifully complemented by the high-carat gold original setting, with its attractive engraved border.

A woman could also happily wear this marvellous ring – but I was so pleased to find a jewel for male collectors that I had to emphasise its universal appeal.
