the probably Bulgarian counterfeiters' workshop is a master of " ageing " almost perfectly.

No one notices? Whether Roman, Byzantine or Medieval, all rings have an almost identical state of preservation. This should actually make the buyer suspicious, because often there are more than 1000 years in between

First ring is an interpretation by Bulgarian forgers of a signet ring copied from the Medieval seal ....

too expensive for bargain hunters - . But then who buys these obvious fakes? With the amount of rings spiced up with gold applications, even a newcomer must be suspicious.
I would say a prime example of how easy it is to fool the buyer on ebay. If you set the selling prices outrageously high, call the magic word "gold" and the mind of even the most critical buyer is being driven back.

All fakes from his personal collection? Funny, then he doesn't know the translation into our modern language? You get it for free if such a rare piece is bought from a dealer, auction house or, as here, probably from museums. Although, museums do not sell such pieces, especially not in Europe.

all rings (even the seal) in the same style. Rings with gold, strangely enough, almost all with natural unpolished gemstones (even in the Middle Ages, the jewelers could already polish stones) and the inscriptions made by the same hand. Prices higher than comparable real antique rings.
I hope you did not buy these overpriced fakes.The money is better invested in these hard times in helping those in need (whether with 2 or 4 legs).

expensive, fake and almost always set with unpolished semi-precious stones. Faulty inscriptions and sloppy gilding (or as the seller says "real gold).
