Vintage “CB” Nicolo Intaglio Signet Ring


This midcentury signet ring features the crisp initials "CB" in a rectangular setting. This style of intaglio is known as nicolo - an in-the-know term for onyx cut with an ultra thin hazy white top layer. The mounting is fashioned in 8k gold with strong shoulders and a tapered flat hoop. Satisfying mid-20th-century proportions right here.
