Ancient Sasanian Intaglio Swivel Ring

Ancient Sasanian Intaglio Swivel Ring

An impressive Sasanian (Neo-Persian, a.k.a Sassanian) lion intaglio ring. This carnelian intaglio is circa 600 A.D, and the oldest one we've had. The ring is set with a contemporary 18k yellow gold swivel mounting. Lion symbolizes power, strength and bravery. The intaglio shows some surface wear around the edge, but overall in great condition.
