Gilt bronze, the band flaring and joining the bezel with a slight overlap to preserve its perfect circular form. The bezel deeply incised with a hexagram, enclosing six radials, two of which align with the band and are extended (cardinal). Ring size 11. The hexagram was thought to have supernatural powers and this ring would have been believed to protect its owner. In some cases the powers were thought to confer to the owner who was then viewed as a sorcerer or wizard.
