Superb 17th C. (1600s) Gold Wedding Band
From the same estate collection as our embossed woman's ring, also made in the 17th century, this most unusual wedding band is of solid gold with a rosy cast. It's in excellent condition without problems or flaws and has not been resized. Currently it's about a size 3. You'll remember from "Romeo and Juliet" that Renaissance brides were exceedingly young. Girls married in their early teens or even sooner; hence, the small size of their wedding rings. This is a choice piece for anyone who collects very early and remarkable rings. It could be worn as a pinky ring or pendant, or possibly resized by an expert jeweler.

No charge for gift wrap and insured U.S. shipping.
