Description
ucilla was married to Emperor Lucius Verus in 164 A.D. She was the daughter of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina the Younger, sister to Commodus, the future emperor. After the death of Verus, she married an elderly man by the name of Pompeianus. However, having once been Augusta, wife of an emperor, Lucilla was not satisfied leading a quiet, private life with a man of much lower station. Later on, Lucilla was implicated in one of the numerous plots to overthrow her brother Commodus and was banished to the island of Capri in 182 A.D. Soon afterward, she was put to death. The splendor of the precious metals is allowed to shine in this ring. The natural hues of the silver and gold complement each other. In this ring, the present and the past combine. The classical form of the modern ring enhances the timeless beauty and majesty of the ancient coin. This ring is a symbol of the glorious wealth and dominant power of the Roman Empire. To wear this ring is to reconnect with the past while continuing to look stylish in the present. - (DK.079)
