45. ROMAN BRONZE BRACELET

2nd - 4th Century AD. Decorated with diagonal incised lines.

Roman bracelets are some of the most collectable antiquities for sale. Roman men, women and children of all social classes wore bracelets to decorate their wrists and also their arms (armlets). They were made in a variety of materials; particularly copper-alloy, glass, silver, gold and in Britain shale (manufactured in Yorkshire and Dorset).

Just like Roman rings, a significant proportion of surviving Roman bracelets are far too small for an adult to wear. This tells us that they were worn by children in combination with other jewellery.
