MEDIEVAL EUROPEAN MAN'S RING, 13TH-15TH CENTURY, SIZE 13
13th-15th century AD. Gilt bronze, large size 13 with a raised squared face, 5.6mm at the bottom flaring to 6.7mm at the face. These evidently served as signet rings for owners accomplished enough to wear jewelry but illiterate. Illiteracy or limited literacy was common and probably the norm in most cultures at the time. The signet served as a man’s seal as binding as a signature. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
