A beautifully made 18ct gold ring set with a rectangular carved carnelian of a dancing muse with cymbals. It is so well carved with fine detail. The trick was to carve through the lighter layers of the carnelian to achieve the tones. This was a highly skilled job and there were craftsman in Italy and France who were able to achieve this quality in the 19th century. The ring was made circa 1860-1890.
