A cameo depicting a Ptolemaic Queen as Demeter, cameo: circa 200s – 100s B.C., sapphire: 11th century, mount: 16th century, gold, layered agate, sapphire, enamel, The most likely Ptolemaic princess to be represented in this portrait is Arsinoe II (c. 316-270 B.C.), daughter of Ptolemy I and Berenike. In this remarkable portrait the engraver has succeeded in presenting her as she was a woman of tremendous character, strength of will and ambition, worshipped as the Greek corn goddess, Demeter.
Gold ring, the ribbed hoop terminating in beaded shoulders supporting the cruciform bezel set with two emeralds in oblong settings, centred on a third emerald in a round setting flanked above and below by two rubies similarly set Late Roman, 4th century A.D., hoop perhaps later. @Deidra Brocké Wallace
