Victorian Intaglio Onyx Warrior Pendant

There are two types of gemstone carving that exist like a married couple: cameos and intaglios. A cameo typically reflects a small scene or figure carved in relief, so it protrudes out towards the wearer. In contrast, an intaglio is carved into a gemstone to create a hollow recessed image. They can be worn with the concave carving facing the wearer or turned over, to reveal an engraved image floating below a smooth surface. This intaglio is of a warrior carved in onyx. The setting is 14k rose gold and platinum.
