Ring with partitioned decoration

New product

This ring, which dates from the middle of the 3rd millennium, offers a beautiful example of partitioned decoration, a process very much appreciated because of its polychrome. The lapis lazuli and cornelian inlays form a very fine frieze decoration with alternating four-petalled rosettes, helical crosses and reniform motifs. The rims of the ring are more prominent and the stones form curved rafters nested in each other.

This is a technique that requires a great deal of mastery on the part of the goldsmiths, the fixing of the partitions being done by simple heat treatment without any welding.


Dimensions:
Width: 2.20 cm
Materials: Brass, Resin
Period: Around 2500 BC.
Origin: Egypt
