To worship the sea.. Here we see the god of the seas Neptune wearing a superb deep crown, with long flowing hair and beard, along with his signature trident. His hair and beard are sculpted to look like rolling waves! Deeply hand carved into a thick, solid piece of natural translucent carnelian, the detail is astounding – each hair depicted, his bone structure and facial expression visible, and the heightened realism of the whole piece along with its classical influence, lends an otherworldly effect to the art. Hes set into a wonderful quality, solid 9 carat gold ring, itself a worthy holder of an intaglio of such size and meaning – with strongly tapering shoulders and wide band. It dates from around 1870 and is in very good, fully wearable condition throughout. It weighs 9.5 grams, measures 26 x 20 mm across the head, and its ring size is 9.5+ US, T+ UK – reasonably easily resized if needed.
