Prostitutes in the Roman Empire were young and often slaves. They wore these distinctive rings to be easily recognized in the streets. Size 1 ¾ for a young girl. 2.2mm rounded band topped with garish raised pyramidal "stone" with spread base, comically emulating the stone of the quality rings worn by cultured women. Prostitution was practiced openly in ancient Rome and some of the best evidence is in the remains of Pompeii. Many prostitutes were slaves. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. See the reference image which shows the process. Gift boxed with a certification of authenticity.
