Hammered sheet metal ring in a shield formation designed to be worn as a thumb ring. Judges and spectators of ancient Roman gladiator spectacles would “vote” via thumbs up or down on the life or death of the participant. The “Pollice Verso” ring pays homage to an ancient macabre gesture still active in common parlance.

The Tall side of the ring ranges from 1/2" - 5/8", depending on the size of the ring.

The shorter side of the ring at it's lowest point ranges from 3/16"- 1/4"

Each piece will vary due to the handmade process and availability of materials. However, your piece will be similar to the one pictured.
