Gilt bronze, size 7 ½ of oval form. Heavy medially ridged band necked toward the shoulders. Oval floral form bezel with central hatched surface raised center, probably used as a signet. The ring could be impressed and compared to an impression on a document, clay tablet, or merchant’s seal. Aside from the permanence of the impression, most people were illiterate. Professionally refurbished with the 24karat gold surface restored. Gift boxed with a certificate of authenticity.
