Product Description

This beautiful ring hosts an ancient round cameo portraying Socrates: famous philosopher from ancient Greece often considered the father of western philosophy and renowned for his contribution to the field of ethics.Socrates was a great supporter of dialogue between people recognized as a source of knowledge and personal improvemen, remembered for noted quotes such as “know thyself” or “the value of a man is measured in the number of those who stand beside him not those who follow”. In this ring, his classy profile sculpted on blue ceramic and housed in round black enamel and diamonds, finely emerges with new and contemporary energy. One-of-a-kind piece totally designed and handmade in Italy.

4- Are cameos reproducible?

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!

7 - How should I clean my cameo?

Anna Porcu jewelry is made with original antique cameos from the 19th century.

If you need a more thorough cleaning you can add a drop of shampoo to the water. Dry well with a cotton cloth.
