SIZE 6. Prostitutes in the Roman Empire were very young and often slaves. Rounded face band, 2.9mm, high raised inverted conical top mount, indented each side and with a small top nub. Emulating a fashion ring of a woman with the mount exaggerated yet still tasteful indicative of a urban (City of Rome) origin. Exceptional detail 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 certificate of authenticity.
