This high-quality Numari-branded ring is both an impressive powerful piece of jewellery and a tangible connection to the turbulent and mysterious time of Ancient Rome. It is crafted in 14kt yellow gold and sterling silver, featuring a genuine silver coin struck in Ancient Rome over two millennia ago. The ring brings together antiquity and modern design, as a solid gold bezel surrounds the coin, complementing the sterling silver elements of the ring. As with all Numari Jewellery, the utmost care has been taken to ensure that this ancient coin has not been damaged by the setting in any way. This bold and dynamic ring weighs approximately 15 grams and measures approximately 2.2cm across. This ring has been impressively set with a genuine, very high-quality (almost museum-quality) ancient Roman coin, depicting the profile of Emperor Hadrian (117 – 138 CE). Emperor Hadrian has gone down is history for many reasons, the most prominent of which is for building Hadrian`s Wall which marked the northern limit of Britannia under Roman rule. Hadrian is regarded as the third of the Five Good Emperors, rulers who brought relative peace and prosperity during their reign. A lover of Greece and ancient Greek history, this emperor deemed Athens the cultural capital of the Roman Empire and fuelled the construction of many decadent temples in the city. He was also responsible, thanks to his infamous love Antinous, for the establishment of one of the most popular cults of ancient times. This spectacular ring will be enjoyed both as a personal adornment and as a quality piece of ancient history.
