Vintage 9ct Gold and Shell Cameo Ring
 
The vintage 9ct yellow gold cameo ring is set with an oval (16.4mm x 12.2mm), finely carved, shell cameo of a pretty young lady, in early 19th Century style, looking right. The cameo is in a slightly raised claw setting. The shoulders of the ring have pierced decoration. The ring is marked “9ct”; “OBLO” and has a further mark which has not been deciphered. OBLO is apparently the name under which a Mr. M. Oboler marketed jewellery made by him in Cape Town in the mid-20th Century.
