Anglo-Saxon and Viking (5th-11thC) "An Anglo-Saxon period silver finger ring made from a single strand of square-section silver wire. The wire is coiled twice to form the hoop, and the remaining length is used to produce a double-start spiral bezel. The two ends of the wire are wound round the hoop to form shoulders. Traces of gilding are possibly present."
Roman Gold Bracelet, Circa 300s B.C., Inside the repeated motive, in the center, are pearls. Their conservation is very good considering the age of the piece. The pearls are typically from the Arabian waters, either from the Red Sea or from the Arabian Gulf. The Arabian Gulf is the most probable provenance. The pearl trading route was, in antique times, going from Basra in today Iraq to Aleppo in Syria, and from there to the Byzantine capital Constantinople.
