Sold

32F
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail

A most unusual ring which is 18ct gold and is set with two rose diamonds and a central glass section which has a goose intaglio. The Romans always took geese on their expeditions for food but also to act as a warning, so this little Roman intaglio is a talisman. The ring has an expanding section on the back of the shank which makes it very comfortable to wear.
