Roman ring from Trier, around 200 AD
Roman ring with expansive shoulders and button-like plate engraved with a crescent moon and a star, a feature seen frequently on rings of the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. The moon, which is constantly changing in shape, is a symbol for “change”, while the star, which is always the same in the sky, is the symbol for “constancy”; like a Roman “Yin” and “Yang”. Original made of silver, found in the Trier area; private property. Please indicate the required ring size at the end of the order form.
