This handsome gold ring from around 1935 presents a cameo made of agate. The two-tone layered stone is shaped as an octagon and features the portrait of an ancient warrior in profile. A gold setting holds the stone cut securely. In the course of the years the depicted warrior, who presents himself with helmet and splendid Christa, the helmet bush made of horsehair, and who carries a round shield, has sustained a slight wound on one nose. In which duel we don't know exactly. But actually the quirk in the nose fits quite well to the sitter. And quite honestly: who wouldn't still like to look this good at the age of 90? The ring came to us from a Berlin gem collection and we find the powerful piece of jewellery too good not to be worn anymore.

For centuries, the possession of antique cameos and gems was the claim of almost all great collections, from the Green Vault in Dresden and the treasury of Rudolf II to large private collections such as that of Baron Stosch in later times. The 18th and 19th centuries produced numerous large imprint collections of antique sealstones and gems, which were able to represent the antique imagery of glyptic almost in its entirety. Due to the great travels undertaken by young nobles and wealthy citizens during this period, the use of gems and cameos changed in the early 19th century to larger forms of jewellery, which, cut in stone, shell or Vesuvius lava, were classic and sought-after souvenirs from Italy.
