ROMAN KEY RING C.100-300 AD SIZE 10 ½
Gilt bronze, wearable size 10 ½. Broad rounded band with integral intricately toothed key projection. Good patina. These rings were used to open jewelry boxes, the ownership of which was prestigious. As a result, many were made for show only and worn where no such box existed. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
