A prehistoric grave containing 169 gold rings was uncovered by archaeologists in Crișana, Romania. Road construction connecting the city Oradea with the A3 highway revealed the find.

The grave belonged to a woman from the Tiszapolgár culture whose hair would have been adorned with the rings. Also found at the site were a multi-spiral copper bracelet, two gold beads, and roughly 800 beads made from bone.

“The gold hoard is a sensational find for the period, considering that all the gold pieces from the Carpathian Basin total around 150 pieces. Well, here there are over 160 in just one inventory,” Călin Ghemiş, the lead archaeologist of the dig, said at a press conference, according to Romanian news outlet Agerpres.

Interesting. The rings appear to have been cut from a cylinder of gold instead of hammered out.

Hi Buzz

To me they look like cast and polished from what I see in the pic saw marks would have to be worked out after and wouldn’t see the same uniformity as you would in cast mold with less labour.
