This late 1790s – early 1800s carnelian intaglio features a neo-classical profile bust of a young female wearing elaborate ribbon hair ties, a pearl tiara, and a strand of pearls in her hair.
The intaglio is clearly a work of a great gem carver.
The 22 x 17 mm intaglio is set in an 18K gold neo-classical twisted bezel. The 14K gold shank, probably, is of a later date (mid to late 1800s).
