Hello fellow enthusiasts, it’s been a few years since I’ve posted so forgive me if this is not the correct spot to request help
. I was going through a batch of various Roman
& other bronze rings I’ve collected along side
coins and I have a ring I am absolutely lost on. I have two major questions if anyone recognizes or can provide a direction for me to head
towards identifying and confirming my first question.
1. The ring is bronze and appears to retain areas of what at first glance looks like gold plating that remains. Is this likely to be the case? If not what would you think the other options are for the plating?
2. I’m almost 100% certain this is not Roman
as I’m familiar with and have many Roman
rings in my collection
and this doesn’t resemble anything from their styles. It has what appear to be crescent moons on each side
of a Star/flower design and repeats around the ring. I wish it was Ottoman
based one that but I have a feeling it is much later than that or Roman
, possibly even later than Medieval
period but I am dumbfounded and would love any possible insight regarding it’s possible origin and what the gold looking plating is that remains.
