Amazon warriors were often depicted in battle with Greek warriors in amazonomachies in classical art. This raised carved intaglio shows the warrior on horseback.
This ring, set in pure 22k gold on silver, is completely handcrafted. It features a stunning, rich blue Tagliamonte intaglio.
Tagliamonte Vicenza (continue the tradition of Tagliamonte founded in Torre del Greco (Naples) founded in 1943) dedicated its activity to the production of Venetian Cameo jewelry since 1985. Tagliamonte is bringing back a manufacturing style as old as Mesopotamia. Vitreous pastes molded into cameos or intaglios are a part of jewelry history that has been largely ignored in recent years. The style can be traced back as far as the Mesopotamians, but was further developed by craftsmen from the ancient Roman colony of Aquileia. Mr. Nino Tagliamonte, with two Venetian artists, dedicated five years of research to this project using authentic 18th century plaster matrix carvings. After numerous attempts, they rediscovered and successfully experimented with original Roman blending, processing, and casting methods. Clean with mild soap and water – no jewelry cleaner or harsh chemicals. A soft jewelry cleaning cloth is included with your ring. Stamped with artist’s hallmark.
