A good example of a gold and coral neoclassical ring, made circa 1820. This was the great age for travelling throughout Europe to see the sights know as going on “The Grand Tour”. Around this influx of new tourists grew a very profitable industry for reproductions from  Greek and Roman Classical times. These took the shape of trinkets such as necklaces, brooches and rings. Coral was carved in intricate detail and set in to baubles for the bustling masses. So this ring is from that time and features a bust of a Classical lady from the Roman period.
