Gold ring with Roman Cameo

Ring made from 18 k gold set with an 3rd century Roman layered agate cameo cut in the shape of Medusa’s head. Many cameos showing the head of Medusa have been worn as apotropaic amulet during the Roman period.

The one set in the gold ring is particularly small but still beautifully detailed and perfectly intact (and has a rather friendly than frightening expression.)
