Emperor Gem Ring - Gold Plated
Quantity:  3.25

In Roman times, gold, silver, copper and glass were used to make jewellery. Metals were mixed to make alloys such as bronze, a mixture of copper and tin. Roman bronze sometimes had zinc in it that gave it a gold colour. The Romans often used stones and gems in their jewellery. Sapphires, rubies, garnets and amber were often worn in rings. The Romans were probably the first to use rings as a symbol of engagement

The games in the amphitheatre lasted all day. In the morning wild animals were brought out to fight each other, or to simply kill defenceless criminals. In the afternoon, the gladiators would begin combat. Our image is from a Roman mosaic and shows one type of gladiator, the retarius (net-man), stabbing a leopard with his trident.

This Emperor Gem Ring is made from 22ct gold plated lead-free pewter and is supplied in a clear plastic blister. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
