Hospitium Ring


Elegant in its simplicity, this stunning ring features an oval cabochon stone situated in a wide, crowning bezel. It is based on a gorgeous example found at a suburban sanctuary outside the Roman town of Pompeii, dating from the fourth to the third century BC. Our ring is available in sizes 4 to 10, and with the following stone choices: Red Garnet, Pink Opal, or Black Onyx. Please state your choice of stone in the Special Instructions area of this page.

"Hospitium" (equivalent to the Greek "xenia") is the ancient Greco-Roman concept of hospitality as a divine right of the guest and a divine duty of the host.
