Ring with a high bezel with a deeply set inlay. The inlay is a cabochon quartz surmounting a possibly painted image now indistinct. The base of the straight bezel flares out at the base and then narrows until it reaches shoulders. The shoulders have carved decoration and the shank is plain. The underside of the stone is closed.
