Genuine Roman Bronze Gilded Silver Ring depicting a Lion Head
- • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Roman Bronze 1st cent.AD • Size: 7 US Adjustable • Band material: 24 Kt Gilded Sterling Silver
This silver ring was designed by me and handmade by the craftsmen of my shop, SERRA, opened in Rome in 1910 and located in via Margutta 57 , in the historic center of the city, very close to the Spanish Steps! . The silver ring, gold plated, has in the center an authentic roman bronze depicting a lion head . There are few people who remember the lion as the powerful symbol of an independent Rome. Most people today think of the she-wolf as the symbol of Rome. Until the Renaissance, however, it was the lion - a symbol of strength, sovereignty and justice — that embodied Rome's secular government. All of our jewels are certified by certificate of authenticity attesting their Greek or Roman origin !
