A gold fragment of parallel sided strip or ribbon. The ribbon is rectangular in plan and made from a sheet of gold.

Workflow stage: Published Find published
An early Anglo-Saxon openwork circular gold pendant with a four-spiral swastika-type or tetraskele pattern in the center. The swastika appears to have been stamped from a single piece of gold sheet. It is an equilateral cross with four arms all bent round on themselves anti-clockwise to create spirals. This central design is surrounded by three concentric circles formed by a single beaded wir, now quite worn, spiralling round; this is in turn surrounded by a separate wire, similarly beaded but now extremely worn, creating the outer ring. A corrugated loop with three grooves and four…

The find consists of a small gold ingot of rounded, sub-rectangular shape and roughly plan-convex section; length, 17mm; width, 11mm (max); weight, 8.76 grams. There is a slight, diagonal nick across the narrow end of a hammered, ovoid depression on top, but this appears to have been accidentally caused during working rather than deliberately cut to test the metal.

A large gold finger ring with no decoration or hallmarks. The band is D-shaped in cross-section. The shape is consistent with a date in the early post-medieval period (16th - 17th century), but in the absence of either inscription, exterior decoration, or maker's mark, there is not enough evidence to confirm that it is more than 300 years old.

Description: A small circular gold object, probably a pendant. The object has a backplate apparently made from a number of smaller pieces of gold, which is framed by a gold strip set on edge, 1.5mm wide, which runs around the edge to a butted join at the top. Within this is a two-ply twist of gold wires, c. 0.5mm in diameter, which forms an inner frame and also has a joint at the top. Here the twist meets three more two-ply twists which extend from the top edge of the disc vertically down into the middle. This appears to form a neck, as it ends in a raised animal head made from solder…

Description: Early Anglo-Saxon gold disc pendant made from a relatively thick back-plate onto which are soldered all the other components. In the centre is a collar formed from a vertical strip of sheet gold, retaining a shiny translucent orange/brown cabochon containing air bubbles, identified by Raman spectroscopy (see below) as glass. The collar is now cracked and has a lumpy appearance, possibly some gold solder acting as a repair. Arranged around the setting are ten beaded-wire heart shapes, either touching each other or nearly so; the points touch the collar and the inward-sp…

Post-Medieval gold finger-ring, thin hoop expanding slightly towards the shoulders. Bezel in the form of a central faceted stone (diamond?) flanked by lozenges with three tiny stones (diamonds?).

Object type: JEWELLERY
Broad period: MODERN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Two wide, rectangular-sectioned ovoid loops, interlinked and affixed at one end by a truncated bar. Each loop is decorated with applied twisted gold wires forming a running lozenge pattern with loops at the boarders, interspersed with tiny globular gold beads. Of unknown function - perhaps part of an earring or decoration for a hair pin. Stylistically, however, it is consistent with late 19th century jewellery of archaising design.
