FINE EUROPEAN PILGRIM’S RING 8TH-9TH CENTURY
Size 10. 20.1mm inner diameter. Band is 2.2mm wide. Oval bezel impressed with pips in a matrix, visibly worn from burial. 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. Comes gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
