Medieval and Renaissance Era Rings
So it's the holiday season and you're scouring the realm for the best way to pledge eternal fealty to your Lord or Lady. We've teamed up with Les Enluminures of Paris to put history in your hands, quite literally, with our exclusive collection of extremely rare original medieval and Renaissance rings. Back in the day, Viking chieftains gave braided rings to warriors heading off to battle (check out the Queen in Beowulf). Hand-braided 11 centuries ago, our gold ring is a museum-quality example; 2 1/8 circumference (size 7). Jump ahead to the early Renaissance. The now extinct Talbot dog was the king of the English hunting stable. Our 15th century England signet ring bears an engraving of the faithful and vigilant pooch; 2 1/2" circumference (size 11). Check in during the High Renaissance, and our 16th century Western European ring graced a maiden's hand with a sparkling, mysterious 13mm step-cut tourmaline. It is set in enameled gold; 2 1/4" circumference (size 8). Each arrives with its pedigree spelled out in writing.
Prithee, call 1.877.9NM.GIFT for details before the neighboring castle beats you to these treasures.
