Hair rings take many forms in the archaological record and can be found in almost all cultures, dating back to Ancient Egypt where there were typically made of jasper or ivory.
This British-found ring was cast in silver sometime during the 1st - 3rd centuries A.D. and would have probably been twisted into the hair of a Romano-British man or woman.
At over 3cm in diameter, the ring displays a beautiful patination.
