15th-16th century AD. See Ancient Rings, Pollio, p.126 for this type. Gilt bronze, size 9 ½ with 3.0mm rounded face band expanding to the foliate decorated shoulders. Oval transverse bezel with a cross with trefoil (crutched) terminals. That form is also known as the Crusader's cross, having been an element in the arms of Godfrey of Bouillon which he wore during the First Crusade. Godfrey was a Frankish Knight of the First Crusade, known as Baron of the Holy Sepulcher and the Crusader King, ruler of the Kingdom of Jerusalem following its victorious siege in the First Crusade. Thus, it is also known as the Jerusalem Cross. Worn from the time of its use and the surface textured from burial.  Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. Jewelry gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
