Throughout the classical age, jewelry that blended the rich glow of gold with the deep red luster of garnet was greatly prized. During the long twilight of the Roman Empire, some unknown individual wore this charming ring with its bold geometric shapes. It is so small that we might assume its owner was a child, though the bone structure of the ancients was considerably smaller than it is today. Perhaps no other clue to that vanished life survives, yet when we hold this lovely jewel in our hands, we remember the hands it graced so long ago. – (FJ.0068)
