MEDIEVAL WOMAN’S FASHION RING C.1200-1400 AD, SIZE 5 3/4
Size 5 3/4 for the small finger as was the fashion. Ridged band 4.2mm width swelled at the bottom and shoulders. Oval bezel in two stages resulting in an “eye” effect. This ring would have distinguished its owner as a member of the merchant and noble class. It was a fashion accessory and the faux signet was not intended to deceive, but simply a statement of status and class. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
