A marvellous Georgian ring. This ring features a wonderful hardstone cameo with the profile of an Ancient Roman patrician set in a bright yellow gold mount. This ring reflects the early nineteenth century trend towards neoclassical motifs, which began around the time of the French Revolution. Cameos were particularly popular in this period: Napoleon had a set of cameo and yellow gold jewellery made for Empress Josephine in 1804.
