ROMAN PROSTITUTE’S RING 1st-3rd CENTURY AD, SIZE 4 1/2
Size 4 1/2. Prostitutes in the Roman Empire were very young and often slaves. Deeply rounded band, 2.3mm. The top with garish raised oval bezel comically emulating the stone of the quality rings worn by cultured women. Good condition for these. Prostitution was practiced openly in ancient Rome and some of the best evidence is in the remains of Pompeii. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. Gift boxed with the certification of authenticity.
