This is a beautiful American late 19th century Roman Revival intaglio of what may be a young soldier. What we love about this simple intaglio ring is its effortless intersection between fashion and utility. Perfect for sealing letters, correspondences, or documents, this intaglio might have denoted the wearer’s knowledge of the ancient world or simple appreciation for revival fashion. A wonderful, smaller scale example with a price tag to match.
