Glyptic, the art of carving or engraving especially on gems, is one of the oldest known art forms, with the process flourishing in ancient Greece and Rome. Intaglio, more specifically, is the engraving of a figure depressed below the surface of the gem.

This particular ancient intaglio ring, depicting possibly the bust of a Roman emperor, is an excellent example of this type of skilled carving. Set within a 24-karat yellow gold ring that complements its ageless beauty, the piece is a tribute to the heritage of stone sculpting, an artistry whose grandness belies the small scale of the finished work of art.
