Description: Circa 6th-7th century AD

The cast gold ring, with a collet of beaded wire, is set with a fine Egyptian emerald. The Romans and Byzantines left the emerald in its natural shape and only polished the surface. The central stone is surrounded by a thin wire threaded through loops and strung with seed pearls. The substantial bezel is pyramid shaped which was a popular form in that period.

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.
