Some examples seen in the last photo - thanks for stopping by! Unique and interesting carnelian sardonyx intaglio signet ring with an image of a little forget me not flower set with pearls and a center rose cut diamond for added sparkle. The carnelian is banded / layered so when you view the stone from the side you can see the white stripe in the center.

The stem and leaves are carved and have the metallic gold background with green coloring over the top. The nice size rectangular carnelian has a lovely deep russet orange color. It may have been a mourning piece or a romantic gesture with the forget me not motif. Inside the band is hallmarked CML 14k. Antique box is not included.

Currently measures a size 8 1/2, the carnelian measures 13mm by 7mm. All my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. Two flecks of loss to the left side vertical edge of the carnelian which can be seen when viewed from the side and it catches the light. The tiny rose cut diamond is set into the carnelian so it is closed back and has discolored some from age and build up but I did not want to clean it too aggressively to risk losing any of the stones.

Under magnification the right leaf is more green than the left which shows more of the metallic gold in the carved relief of the leaf and stem design. The top face of the stone has surface wear seen only under magnification.

Surface wear and light scratches from use and wear to the gold band commensurate with age. But it has held its shape well and has a sturdy feel.

Sweet piece from a very special era. But due to age, please note this is not a mint condition item. I enjoy making my customers happy and matching unique pieces with new homes. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions! It means a lot to me that you are visiting my store!
