Gold And Carnelian Rings From 450 B.C. Displayed at The Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, California


Recently we took a trip to the Getty Villa in California.  Check Out some of our previous blogs to see a more detailed about the facility. We took many pictures while we were there and we want to show case all the pictures every so often.

These are 4 rings from as old as 450 B.C. They are made of gold, which has been kept intact after all these years. The Red stone we see, which was very common for its time is the red Carnelian.

Each one has its own engraving on the center stone. Some war based and some homages to popular people around that time period.  We have included a picture of the placard, which gives more details on each piece.

Enjoy
