Description

Ancient Roman fede betrothal ring. Composed of an elliptical plaque with two hands clasping in a handshake within a twisted ropework border, to circular beading on the shoulders with a broad tapering flat shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 3.2g in weight, circa 1st-3rd century AD.

This ring is the earliest example of a fede ring we have come across, and in turn is one of the earliest marriage rings we have seen. This ring is in fine condition with beautiful patina.
