925 silver ring with original Roman cameo depicting the goddess Demeter (1st-2nd century AD)

In this ring there is an authentic Roman cameo depicting the head of Demeter. Demeter (Ceres for the Romans) was a “maternal” deity, goddess of the earth and fertility, tutelary deity of crops and goddess of birth.

Coral was often used as a decorative element in various Roman jewels, to which it gave apotropaic power.

In the back of the coral an ear of corn is depicted which for the Romans was a symbol of prosperity and wealth.
