Size of largest (though all are very similar in size): 0.8" W (2 cm); wearable rings are US size: 4.5, 2, 3.45 (the other two are too bent to be wearable).

Condition
Intaglios have some light scratching commensurate with age but motifs are very clear. Three of them are wearable, but the other two are too bent to be worn. Of those two, one has a small break at its narrowest point and another is very delicate at its narrowest point.
