Sadigh Gallery's Collection of Ancient Roman Jewelry, such as gold rings, bronze rings, crystal necklaces, garnet earrings, gold earrings etc...; and Intaglios.
An "Intaglio" is an engraved or incised figure in a hard material. The shapes of the gems cut in Rome or for the Romans do not differ much from those of the Hellenistic Greek world. Circular stones are perhaps less common and oval ones rather broader. The subjects chosen for engraving were notables, generals and emperors. Heads and figures of divinities are common, especially those most favored by the Romans or appropriate as signet devices like Fortuna.
