Description: This ancient ring has been reassembled in modern times - possibly when the original bezel was detached - by joining a reeded gold band with four gold granules (two on either side) to a circular flat roundel of the same period with floral design in red, blue, green and white cloisonne enamel. The cloisonne technique and colors are typical of that of jewelers of the Middle Byzantine period such as in this complex and delicate enamel decorating the little roundel in the ring.

Please note that this lot has a reserve and is part of a live auction with attending bidders. When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. Invaluable will bid on your behalf as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead, up to your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.

Provenance: Zurich, Switzerland, Galerie Nefer, Ancient Jewellery, 1995, no. 117. (Illustrated with a different bezel)

Dimensions: Bezel 13 x 14 mm; circumference 60 mm.; US size: 8.5; UK size Q

Medium: Gold, enamel

Date: 950
