EUROPEAN PILGRIM’S RING 8th-9th CENTURY
Size 11. 20.7mm inner diameter. Band is 4.0mm wide. Circular bezel impressed with pips in a matrix, three of which are pierced through. That motif is a later incarnation of the five wounds of Christ, found on earlier rings. At this time, the significance was retained but the number sacrificed for decorative considerations. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
