Product Description

This gold ring houses an ancient cameo with Vesta: daughter of Saturn, she was the virgin goddess of hearth, home and family. In this carving she is portrayed with a brazier, indicative of her role as a keeper of the sacred fire of Rome.This subject is taken from one of the most famous paintings by Raphael, “The triumph of Galatea”. In this ring the harmonious and concentric redundance of curved geometries boldly exhalt the goddess lively movements, enterely handset in black onyx and lava. One-of-a-kind piece enterely 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?

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.
