This unique Mid-Century setting has a lovely simple bezel and subtly carved shoulders. A cameo of the hand-carved Tiger's Eye is the ring's focal point, with Napoleon and Josephine depicted in crisp relief. Antique c1940 in 10k yellow gold and a comfortable size 10, hallmarked 10(JB)KT.

Cameo is the art of carving a layered material, creating a portrait or landscape with the difference in the colors. While traditionally done in shell, banded onyx has been used in cameo work - particularly in Greece and Italy - for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
