Georgian Pre-Revolutionary American 14k Gold Copper Intaglio Ring
This incredibly rare copper intaglio ring contains a fascinating history that predates the American Revolutionary War. The intaglio, which we believe could be a representation of George Fox, the founder of the Quaker Religion, dates to sometime around 1650-1750. The unique use of copper for the portrait, with its substantial bezel setting of warm 14k gold, reads as elemental and raw. Additionally, the abundant use of the two metals, and the deliberate lack of ornamentation, makes for an incredibly commanding and and yet surprisingly austere piece. The broad gold band, measuring at 12mm wide, provides the perfect balance to the equally substantial copper face of the intaglio.
