Seller: lifepik77 (4,494) 100%, Location: London London, GB, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 152308184496 ROMAN GOLD MARRIAGE RING CLASPED HANDS 1st ,2nd Century AD Condition- wearable, massive 22K - 23K gold . Bezel -Claped Hands Measurements- inner diameter from 14 mm to 18.7 mm , 21 mm outher diameter, 12.12 g The primary focus of the present ring is the clasped hands motif, an indication that this was a betrothal or wedding ring. A betrothal ring combined the function of our engagement and wedding rings. There is no evidence that a ring had any significance in marriage in the early Near East, and a Greek or Roman origin is probable. A ring given as a love pledge is first mentioned in Roman literature in the second century BC, although this was from a woman to a man. Not all rings given as love gifts were a prelude to marriage, but many were. Material: Gold, Type: Rings
