Unique ID: NMS-6201FE

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Post-medieval gold finger ring. D-sectioned band, plain externally, engraved internally in italics In thee my choyc'e I doe rejoyc'e followed by a stamped maker's mark of a Q in low relief within a shield. External diameter 23mm. Internal diameter 19mm. Width of band 4.5mm. Weight 6.6g.

A 17th - 18th century posy ring with an internal inscription in similar italics in the collections of the British Museum (museum number AF.1197) has a similar stamped maker's mark, which does not appear in any standard work of reference and is therefore not identifiable.

Inscription: In thee my choyc'e I doe rejoyc'e
