Ancient Roman Soldier Intaglio Ring

Roman Intaglio Ring


Roman Intaglio ring for men in 18-karats gold.

This signet ring for man shows a top oval shape set with a lapis lazuli intaglio stone engraved with the Latin name RAPAX, which was the name of the XXI° legion of Rome during antiquity. 

This ring is not an antique intaglio ring but a modern intaglio ring inspired by this ancient Roman legion. In Latin, RAPAX means predator, it was engraved in a rough style into the lapis lazuli as were the rings of the soldiers of the antique Rome empire.

The shank of the ring is made from a laminated sheet of 18k gold, which makes the ring quite light and inexpensive. The lapis lazuli stone is 13 millimeters large by 9 millimeters wide and is set on the top of the ring. The ring is 13 millimeters wide.

This ring is a reproduction of a real Roman soldier's ring from the Roman Rapax Legion. The original ring was engraved in the metal and we made for the reproduction a more luxurious version with a lapis lazuli intaglio. The dark blue color of the carved stone offers a strong color contrast with the polish 18k gold of the signet ring.

Intaglio jewelry is a branch of glyptic that consists of carving symbols, letters, and numbers into a stone to transform such stone into a seal, able to be used in clay as the Mesopotamians were doing 7000 years ago or used with wax as Knights were doing during the middle age. Intaglio rings are a reminiscence of this ancient tradition.

The gold weight of the ring is 6 grams in size US 9. Please be aware that the gold weight of your ring can slightly change depending on your ring size.

Please be aware that such a ring can be customized with your initials, name, or logo upon request. Feel free to contact us in this case.
