Hematite intaglio ring in 10k yellow gold. In very good condition. Hematite is said to have protective qualities and Roman centurions believed in rubbing themselves with the stone before battle. In its unpolished form, you can often observe reddish brown coloration and the Romans believed the stone formed from the blood of fallen warriors. It’s quite poetic that we still traditionally carve Roman centurions into this stone. If you buy him, you have to name him!
Size 6 1/8, weight approx 3.9g.
Please understand that almost everything I sell is either preloved, vintage or antique - it is highly unlikely that it will be in new condition. Everything I sell is sold as is. Gold may be scuffed, stones may show wear, patina will often be left in tact. I will endeavor to list any defects that are significant but understand I may miss something that you consider important. Please ask any and all questions prior to purchase - I am always happy to discuss my pieces.
