FACTS & HISTORY: Intaglio is a technique which dates back to antiquity and is still in use at present. Patterns, designs or – more frequently – images are carved or engraved in gemstones leaving a hollow impression in the untouched background. This style of carving is the opposite of the cameo technique.
In the Ancient Roman Empire, owning an intaglio ring, whether commissioned or inherited, was a sign of one's wealth and power. Their main use being to act as seals with hot wax, intaglio rings were designed out of both practicality and beauty.
