SOLD Vintage 18kt Carved Intaglio Amethyst Medusa Ring
A wonderful ring from the late 20th Century, c1980s. The ring is made from solid 18kt gold and has a spectacular carved intaglio amethyst as its centrepiece. The intaglio depicts Medusa and is reminiscent of the imagery used in Versace clothing and jewellery, though it is not marked as being from this designers collections. The carving of the face is beautifully done and is in immaculate condition. The legend surrounding Medusa is a sad one, though she has come to represent protection and has inspired many artists in the past. The amethyst has a lovely purple colour and sits in four chunky claws giving the ring a very stylish look overall.
