Small gold ring, thin circular-section band with empty oval stone setting. The ring is distorted and the setting damaged


The ring is Post-Medieval but very hard to date due to its simple form, but it is possibly late 18th or early 19th Century.

The find dates to later than 1709 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.
