I cannot say enough about this ring. It is elegant, and was made with quality materials and excellent craftsmanship. The boldly carvved intaglio portrait is of the goddess Hera, wife of Zeus. She is cut into a darkly translucent carnelian. The 14kt rose gold setting has innate classic dignity and rich visual appeal. A treasure, dating to c1870, it is in beautiful condition, secure and can be worn as often as you like. American size 7 1/2; UK size P; Japanese size 15.
