"The Lady In Glass"

SOLD Reverse Intaglio Butterfly-Backed Cameo Portrait Ring

  • Sale
  • Regular price $485.00

This beautiful ring is a conversion that was once a brooch and is now a fantastic ring seated in silver. The neoclassical style of the painting is one that we love dearly as delicate strands of hair fall off of this woman's neck and give a fantastic decorative flair to this ring.

Details (approximate):

Dimensions: 15mm x 10mm face

Ring Size: 7 (Can be resized. If needed; please add sizing to your cart)

Materials: paint, disintegrated butterfly wing

Metal: Silver

Marks: "925"

Condition: This lovely ring was once converted into a ring and it is believed that the butterfly wing behind the lady's portrait was once a beautiful blue butterfly wing that turned brown upon conversion. The rest of this ring, however, is remarkable. The silver is worn as time would do while the glass is still very well intact, as is the beautiful painting.
