A Medieval finger-ring made from a flattened band with incised decoration on the external surface, possibly an inscription.

Similar styles of inscription occur on medieval brooches and rings and frequently carry amuletic significance. The finger-ring is silver and dates from the fourteenth century. Dimensions: diameter 17 mm, height 5 mm. Consequently, in terms of age and as the object contains a minimum of 10% precious metal it qualifies as Treasure under the stipul…

A fragment of a medieval finger-ring with part of the hoop missing. The ring is iconographic in form and has a double-facetted bezel engraved with the images of two standing saints.

A silver finger ring of typical stirrup type, but decorated. The band is D-shaped in section. The bezel is oval with a raised cross in the setting (rather than a stone). The quarters of the setting probably contained niello, with evidence remaining of this in one quarter. The flat sides of the bezel are also decorated, with one side bearing a cross filled in with niello and the other side with an 'A', also filled in niello. The shoulders are decorated with a lozenge pattern, in which the lozenges have incised cross-hatching creating smaller internal lozenges, and the large lozenges ar…

Treasure case No : 2010 T4. A large silver-gilt finger ring, probably worn by a man, possibly over a glove. The ring has a circular hoop, which has been distorted slightly out of shape. The hoop has a rectangular section; it is largely undecorated, until the shoulders. The shoulders are slightly broader than the rest of the hoop and depict a series of incised, linear markings. Two of the markings resemble the letter A, while the other markings appear more random but possibly form cross-hatching. The bezel then rises about the shoulder to form a square shape, with rounded corners. It…

A large medieval silver signet-ring, the circular bezel engraved with the letter 'R' within a punched edge. The hoop is slightly distorted. Signet rings were used for sealing documents and letters; the letter R would have signified the initial letter of the name of the owner. In the absence of any identifying initials, inscription or heraldry, it is impossible to identify with any certainty the owner of the ring on the basis of a single letter.

A medieval silver finger-ring, the decoration imitating the form of a miniature leather belt or strap.

Cast copper alloy Late Medieval finger ring. The hoop has a circular cross section and widens at the angular shoulders. The hoop is broken near to the bottom but is complete, just being bent slightly out of shape. Because of this the hoop is not fully circular and measures 27.6mm x 25.71mm. The bezel is sub-oval and flat. It has a design in relief in the centre which consists of a W with an indistinct design above- possibly representing a crown- with two scroll like patterns visible. This type of ring is known as a signet ring and the design could relate to a specific family.
