Near East / Holy Land, Byzantine Empire, ca. 12th to 15th century CE. A charming bronze ring, probably made to be decorative rather than worn given its massive size, with a hollow, large, pediment-shaped bezel. This pediment has beautiful floral decoration with extra lead added and polished to create a contrast between the silvery color of the lead and the bronze. The ring itself is thick and has a small attached bauble at its nadir. Size: 1.75" L x 1.9" W x 2.25" H (4.4 cm x 4.8 cm x 5.7 cm)
