Fragment of a silver gilt finger ring. Only a small fragment of the hoop remains which is rectangular in cross-section. The bezel is formed into a heart sprouting two flowers. Both flowers have four petals and are arranged one to the left and one to the right. The ring is very similar to one from Firle, East Sussex (2004 T233).
