ROMAN KEY RING C.100-300 AD JEWELRY, SIZE 10
Bronze, wearable size 10. Broad rounded band with integral intricately toothed key projection with a small hole under the shank, accessed from inside the ring. Purpose unknown. These rings were used to open jewelry boxes, the ownership of which was prestigious. As a result, many were made for show only and no such box existed. This example is professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. See the reference image which shows the process. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
