Description

Byzantine betrothal ring, 7th-8th century AD. A yellow gold ring with square plaque-form bezel engraved with two crowned full-length figures flanking a cross, all within a dotted border, and on a half round shank, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.

This is an extremely rare example of one of the earliest types of engagement rings. A highly similar ring can be found in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (M.184-1937).
