FINGER RING

Unique ID: DUR-1B82E4

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Cast lead Post Medieval finger ring, a decade ring, dating to c.1600-1800.

It is circular in plan with a projecting flat oval shaped bezel (diameter 10.60mm x 8.69mm) and ten small projecting knops around the outer circumference. The bezel is plain but on other examples there are designs and letters.

This appears to be a lead version of the more usual copper alloy rings of this type. Decade rings were used for the rosary- to repeat the Ave and Paternoster prayers. They were introduced in the 10th century but became more popular at times of religious tension, in particular the 16th century onwards.
