This is a wonderful vintage Art Deco 14 karat yellow gold hardstone sardonyx cameo men's ring. The carving depicts a Roman or Greek solider / warrior in the white forefront, and a layer of rich, black onyx background. The heavy gold mounting is very beautiful and masculine- it features layers of gold which fan out around the gemstone.
