Gilt bronze, size 7 1/2. Plain band with large bezel with indented medial edges. The top impressed with 11 dots within a circle motifs. On earlier rings, those are found in groups of five representing the five wounds of Christ. By this time, they lost their literal meaning and were applied as sacred decoration in the old fashion. Dating to the early period of Islam, when Christians were allowed generally unobstructed access to the Holy Land, and predating the Crusades. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored. Gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
