ROMAN KEY RING C.100-300 AD SIZE 11 3/4

The finest example we’ve seen. Gilt bronze, size 11 3/4. Broad rounded band, 5.3mm, with integral intricately toothed key projection. Made with a core filling the inside which distributed the flowing metal and allowed for slower cooling. The core was then laboriously removed by hand and the inside of the ring polished. Remnants of the core are clear inside the ring.  These rings were used to open jewelry boxes, the ownership of which was prestigious. As a result, many were made for show only and worn where no such box existed. Professionally refurbished with the gold overlay restored.
