The Ring of Ancient Soldiers is a vintage 10k gold mans ring. On the rectangular face is a double cameo depicting a side view of the faces of both a Roman or Centurion in the front and a Spartan in the back both facing to the left and carved from the same piece of tiger eye. The carved tiger eye face is approximately 5/8 of an inch long by 1/2 wide. This ring is solid and well made with a band that is perfectly in the round. The gold is in excellent vintage condition considering the age of the ring with typical scratches that come with gentle wear. We believe it was created sometime between the 1930’s and the 1950’s. Renowned for their superior training the fighting abilities both the Roman soldier and the Spartan were feared for their prowess at arms, their incredible discipline and their undying loyalty to each other and their country. A perfect gift for a man of such characteristics!
Please remember this is a piece of vintage or retro jewelry. Most of it is used and will show some signs of “normal wear” that comes with age. We are very careful not to destroy any patina that may have formed as we think it adds to the beauty of these pieces. Of course you may want to polish or clean off the patina, and that is totally up to you. As we describe each piece if we find any flaws or defects we will point them out in the description. If we have replaced clasps or made other repairs, we will also note these in the description.
