Ring, Ladies, with Crucified Christ intaglio, ca. 3rd-6th Cent. AD
Copper alloy; 1.7gm, Ring size 7 1/2, "Shoulder-type"
Con/ Cleaned, not waxed and certainly wearable.
Seller's Note/ The intaglio on this ring is truly stunning as we see the image of Jesus Christ, no longer on the cross, but rather re-born and ascending to heaven, perthaps? This is the exact type of ring, small and discrete, that would have been worn by a woman in the new, and sometimes very dangerous, cult of Christianity at that time.
Rings were made to be worn, not tucked away. The longer this ring is worn the better it will look!
