His proud, firce profile seems to come out bravely from this ring with an antique cameo in lava stone , breaking material and time boudaries. The red enamel perfectly highlights Hercules’s upstream essence and passionate character, while gold details create a metaphor of his precious virtue: wisdom.

No, my cameo jewelry pieces are unique and one-of-a-kind. However, if you like a specific subject and the cameo that portrays it has already been sold, I will do my best, upon request, to find a similar one but it will NEVER be the same.

5- Can I give you a cameo that I own to be reassembled on design by Anna Porcu?

I often get this question but, unfortunately, the answer is no.
All the cameos that I use in my design were chosen by my eye and my heart. I am sure you do understand!
