"I love this item! Please let me know when you have another one":

Ganymede, the handsome Trojan youth, was renowned for his beauty. Captivated by him, Zeus, the King of gods, transformed into an eagle and whisked Ganymede away to Olympus. There, immortalized, he served as the gods' cupbearer on Mount Olympus- a legendary role in the Greek myths.

This antique Georgian or early Victorian Cameo Ring has been expertly carved in shell and set in warm 18k gold (tested).

The cameo measures 20mm x 16mm; the ring weighs 6.8 grams.

Currently a UK size O (US size 7), re-sizing is possible; please enquire to confirm your requirements.

A stunning and classic piece, presented gift-ready, complete with independent Jewellery Report and presentation box.
