This superb signet ring is the reproduction of an antique Byzantine wedding ring dating between the 6th and the 7th century. The original ring reproduced here is more than 1300 years old. While the original byzantine ring is made in solid gold, this reproduction is made in solid silver engraved with figures and Greek text. The ring is composed of an octagonal shank on top of which is a heigh-foil bezel.
The top part of the ring is concave and represents Christ and the Virgin being blessed by two other persons. Above their head, we can see a star engraved. Above, we can see the word OMONYA in Greek which means CONCORD.
While the original antique Greek had scenes of Christ's life engraved in each face of the shank, we can make any kind of engraving on these faces as a personalization of your ring.
The top part of the ring is 18 millimeters large and the ring weighs 15 grams in sterling silver.
This kind of wedding ring design is typical of early period Byzantine rings. These rings had 7 facets to represent scenes from Life of Christ. These miniatures were arranged in chronological order: Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Presentation in the Temple, Baptism, Crucifixion, and Christ appearing in the garden after the Resurrection.
