    About this item

    This is a Migration period gold finger ring, dating to the 5th - 7th century A.D. The ring has a raised bezel decorated with granulation, set with the original sapphire blue glass gem. This example has a grooved hoop and decorated shoulders. For similar ring see: Wamers E. Archäologische Reihe Schmuck des frühen Mittelalters im Frankfurter Museum für Vor-und Frühgeschichte Frankfurt am Main. VII, 1986, cat. 42;

    This ring is made from a high carat buttery yellow gold in excavated condition. Sadly the hoop has a single crack (this is stable and will benefit from a repair).
