14K Hardstone Cameo Locket Ring of Mars / Ares

1,900.00

This is a handsome and highly detailed hardstone cameo of Ares (Mars), The Greek God of War, that dates to the late Victorian era. Ares is depicted with a Van Dyke style beard wearing a helmet with a dragon perched on top, in full armor. The cameo is mounted in a simple 14 karat yellow gold frame which is hinged on one side. Inside the ring there is a space large enough to accommodate a 24 mm x 15 mm photo. There is a signature on back of the cameo that reads, "Rupreck". 

Markings: The inside of the locket is hallmarked 14K. 

Size: approximately a size 5.5 and could easily be resized due to the simple shank 

Weight: 13.5 grams 

Measurements: cameo - 27 mm long x 20 mm wide, the ring sits 3/8" off of the finger 

Condition notes: Over all the ring is in very good condition. The locket has a secure closure. There is one small chip on the back of the helmet and a possible chip on the neck of the dragon. The cameo has a very thin, dark band of color that can be seen when the cameo is back-lit. This is not a crack or inclusion, it is just natural color banding.
