Gilt bronze, size 1 3/4 which suggests a child of six months age or less. Rounded face band, 2.7mm width with Roman nub to the bottom. Oval bezel with pine tree motif. The custom of baptizing infants originated in the second century with the evolution of the concept of Original Sin. Rings for infants were surely a luxury reserved for the noble class. Professionally refurbished with 24karat gold surface restored, gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Wonderful gift for a modern Baptism!
