These artifacts were originally designed to be enjoyed by their owners and I have tried to return these treasures to a state which will both charm and enchant their new owners and show the skill and craftsmanship of old. Super Historical Artifact!!! This ring was found at a site with a lot of Roman artifacts and indeed is a roman ring from the 1st or 2nd Century A.D. but the design on the bezel was put there many centuries later. Probably about 400A.D. - 500A.D. The design is known as a "Potent" or "Potencée" Cross and was used as a symbol up until modern times. The cross is a composed, anserated cross which is a cross made up of crossed arms that resemble four T's joined at right angles at the bases. This ring has a 12mm circular bezel. Besides being a Christian symbol, these rings designs always were used as some type of symbol between those who would know what it represented. Besides the large bezel, this ring has a SUPER solid, band with its own highlighting decorations of scalloped decorations forming shoulder escutcheons. There is a nice golden color to this ring with a silky shine which adds a great amount of character to this ring. The fact that it comes in a nice, wearable size is an added bonus. Above and below are two more views of this ring. Look at how deep and nicely done the engravings are made. The picture above shows you a birds-eye-view against a white background to better show off the shoulder escutcheons. . The picture below shows you the shine of the rings that I am offering tonight.
