The engagement ring of King Radoslav was made in gold in 1219.
On the "head" of the engagement ring of Stefan Radoslav, the latter king of Serbia (1227-1234), an inscription in the Greek language, written in verse, is engraved, with which he addresses his wife - Anna Komnenos, daughter of the ruler of Epirus, Theodore Komnenos Duka.
The ring was made in the Byzantine manner, probably in Thessaloniki.
The exceptionality of this ring is even greater when you consider that this is the only preserved example that bears the names of members of the imperial and royal families in the act of engagement.
Today, the ring is kept in the National Museum in Belgrade.
