I am less inclined to think it as Roman though. The flowing hair is goddess like and makes her look noble and on a quest at the same time, and the helm is not roman. The helm more resembles a parade helmet from forever ago because of the high forehead piece jutting out. I think that the back part of the helmet is lost in her sea of hair.

OK, yeah, I just finished reading a historical novel, so what?

May we see a picture of the inside open? I am a jeweler, though I do not specialize in vintage, I do have several books at home. I will take a look and see if I can find anything for you. There are no markings or hallmarks beyond "3 5", and those are hand written? Like a said a pic of the inside might help on narrowing down the era, as would any hallmarks whatsoever.

I think it looks more Greek too. I was just noticing that although the helmet was different, she also had long flowing hair (just going down her back).

I had almost forgotten than you are a jeweler Josh. Good to see you chiming in here.

Thanks all!! Sorry I haven't commented - I'm up to here with the economy, so I'm presently looking for some type of job. (did I mention I haven't worked in 16 years?) sheesh!
Anyway, here's the inside:
the bezels are missing, and I'm not sure how long they've been gone.
Checking with the loupe again, the numbers 35 are 2mm on the blank side, and 2.5mm on the patterned side (they're upside-down on this side). They're on the left side (9:00) of the photograph on both pieces.
There is a raised mark at the top that looks like either a capital " O " or a zero on the blank side, but I don't know if that's an alphebetical mark, or ?
