Finger ring card

Finger ring

MOL.2015.90.6
Silver finger-ring with red semi-precious stone (carnelian?). Complete and in good condition. Henig type 11. Oval profile with a wide expanded bezel tapering smoothly at the shoulders to a narrow band, D-shaped in section. Patches of copper alloy corrosion product visible on the surface (before cleaning). The stone is oval, rather small for the size of the bezel and sits within a slight depression. A single incision mark is visible on the top. It appears that it has been filed down in antiquity to remove the design.
