A Victorian-era ring, set with a large, beautifully carved hardstone cameo, depicting the bust of a roman solider, dressed in a feathered helmet and scaled armor. The subject of this subtle, high-relief carving is white hardstone, and the field is black. The cameo faces left and is held in a smooth, slightly bulbous, flat-back bezel. The ring shank is integral to the bezel and features little dotted epaulette details at the shoulder. A series of continuous, graved lines decorate the shank. I like that this centurion is quite solemn looking, and the black/white/gold scheme of this ring makes it an easy friend to other jewels in your story. Metal is 14k rose gold.
