Renaissance silver and rock crystal gemstone finger ring
This is a nice Renaissance silver finger ring, dating to the 16th century. It is set with a clear rock crystal gemstone within a crimped bezel. The gem would have been an antique possibly ancient Roman crystal bead, later set into this ring by a renaissance jeweller. A good Tudor period ring in wearable condition.
