The ancient Romans used similar insignias on their shields, but they identified military units rather than individuals. Coats of arms came into general use by feudal lords and knights in battle in the 12th century. By the 13th century, arms had spread beyond their initial battlefield use to become emblems, flags, or logos for families in the higher social classes of Europe which were inherited from generation to generation.
This ring, set in pure 22k gold on silver, is completely handcrafted. It features a stunning, amber-colored Tagliamonte intaglio.
Tagliamonte Vicenza (continue the tradition of Tagliamonte founded in Torre del Greco (Naples) founded in 1943) dedicated its activity to the production of Venetian Cameo jewelry since 1985. Tagliamonte is bringing back a manufacturing style as old as Mesopotamia. Vitreous pastes molded into cameos or intaglios are an integral part of jewelry history that has been largely ignored in recent years. The style can be traced back as far as the Mesopotamians.
