A book a lot of collectors have been waiting for!



This will fill a particular and significant  gap in the literature and  be especially welcomed by collectors.



 



 



A comprehensive guide to common finger rings between the
Bronze Age and post-medieval periods.



Included are over 450 pictures and descriptions of
frequently encountered types;



along with instructions for cleaning and conservation,
and a detailed glossary of relevant terms.



This book fills a conspicuous gap in research in English
into these precious mementos of times past.



Previous studies are mostly limited to “higher-end” rings
of precious metals and stones;



with little mention of pieces comprised of base metals and
low grade silver alloy.



These artifacts are being increasingly unearthed and sold
on international markets:



a recent tally of ancient, Roman, Byzantine and medieval
rings on ebay alone totaled almost 10,000 items! 



This guide describes their composition, structure and
imagery; thus providing merchants, collectors and researchers



 with an invaluable
reference on artifacts that, until now, have largely gone unexamined.
