Item:264261774596ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS Artifacts, Antiques & Fine Collectables Ancient Medieval Bronze Ring with Cross & Stigmata c. 1300 AD Approximately 700 Years Old! Ancient Medieval Historical Bronze Ring with Cross and 4 Stigmata!Up for sale is a beautiful and ancient Medieval period Bronze ring. The ring displays wonderfully and perhaps would be the center of your collection of crosses or early Christian pieces. It appears to be a solid piece that could be worn if one so wanted to do so. This ring measures about a US Size 9 and has not been repaired or restored. Inside the engraved cross on the flat surface of the ring are the 4 crucifixion wounds or "stigmata" that Christ suffered on his wrists and feet from the nails used to bind him to the Cross. These rings were worn by Catholics in the Medieval and Renaissance times. In St. Paul's Letter to the Galatians, he says: "I bear on my body the marks of Jesus." The faithful would wear rings like this one to prove their loyalty to the Church and to God. Museums and modern archaeological studies usually use the general term “copper alloy” instead of just the term “bronze” to describe these ancient treasures, as many other elements (such as tin, lead, zinc, iron, and even arsenic) were added to the copper to form different strengths of types of bronze items. Ancient bronze artifacts such as this ring are probably about 80% copper and 20% tin, while modern bronze is closer to 88% copper and 12% tin. I have carefully examined this ring under 10x magnification and it also shows authentic and original signs of wear and use that help to further authenticate it as an ancient piece.
