"Salome's Hesitation"

SOLD Antique 14K Hardstone Agate Bas-Relief Cameo Ring

  • Sale
  • Regular price $650.00

The term "Bas Relief" refers to sculpture done in low relief, in which the subject or figure projects slightly from the background but no part is completely detached from it. Cameos are perfect examples of this art technique, and our beauty is no exception.


Made of hard-stone agate and framed with a rectangular 14 karat gold setting, it is a little piece of art to wear upon your hand! Depicting a female figure with diaphanous veils pausing at an Iconic Classical column, she seems poised to step onto the dance floor and begin her seductive performance.  The perfectly contrasting black and white stone lends itself to an eye-catching graphic presentation, ideal for this dramatically figurative narrative!
