GeorgianNicolo IntaglioOwl Ring

This wonderful Georgian ring is fashioned in 22k yellow gold with ornate floral designs at the shoulders rendered in high relief. The face of the ring features a beautifully carved onyx owl intaglio. The bird is perched on the stump of a tree with new branches sprouting around it - we believe this is the Hewitt family crest. This style of intaglio is known as nicolo - an in-the-know term for onyx cut with an ultra thin hazy white top layer.
