This ring houses such a lovely and unusual ancient coin. It is Roman- 5th century (yes, from the year 400 approx). It is from the time of the very beginning of Christianity.
A time when the Roman empire accepted Christianity and began practicing it as a religion!
This particular coin was from the reign of Theodossius II.

This is NOT A REPRODUCTION. It is 100% authentic- found in the Jerusalem area. These coins are relatively rare, and I dont come across them too often. The coin depicts a perfect cross in the center with a dark background. It has a nice coppery patina to it

I have set in in 18 karat gold . The band is tapered towards the front and the coin is flanked on both sides by a generous 18 kt gold disk. The band is thick sterling that has been beaten and then oxidized for an old weathered look.

All irregularities on the shape of the coin are due to the coin itself and the age- I just cant bear to tamper with something so old and lovely- plus, I believe it adds to the beauty of it.

All of my coins are purchased from reliable and reputable sources.

Size is 7.50

This is truely an ususual and fascinating piece of history.
