What I love about this absolutely magical 14ct cameo ring is that it features a rather androgynous figure. I would say there is no discernible gender for the sitter of this beautiful portrait cameo, with their wonderful straight nose and beautiful billowing curls that tumble down the back of their neck. The features on this porcelain beauty are remarkable, and made of a delicate carved shell that is likely Italian in origin. The sensual prong settings give a little “rock and roll” danger to this truly beautiful treasure. I think this would be a really perfect first piece of vintage jewelry or a special historical upgrade for someone who wants a truly fabulously carved cameo ring.
