A fragment of a silver Finger Ring of Roman date (AD 100-300). Henig Type VIII. The fragment is the bezel portion and takes the form of one oval and one circular plate with the oval being larger than the circular plate.

The sub-triangular shoulders have a single notch in each edge, approximately one third of the length down from the bezel, that creates the resemblance of a notched lapel. The upper surface of the shoulders is decorated with two incised convergent lines that form a 'V' at the…

Treasure: 2008 T573 Roman silver ring, circular profile hoop expanding to sub triangular shoulders; flattened bezel with disproportionately large olular setting for the stone, broken on one side, setting missing. The rings internal diameter is very small, so it was probably meant for a child or a petite woman. This item is made substantially of silver and is more than 300 years old, & therefor qualifies as Treasure according to the current act. [text by Richard Hobbs]

Silver gilt finger ring with a smooth but slightly irregular purple coloured stone. This is slightly cloudy and is probably quartz amethyst, set in an oval cup-shaped bezel. The inside of the hoop is plain. The outside of the hoop is decorated with simple "chip carving" forming lozenge shaped fields containing lozenge shaped crosses. The decoration on the band is not symmetrical, there being a flower-shaped decoration below one shoulder and opposite the setting. The ring is complete but the gilding shows signs of wear on the high points. The dimensions of the stone are 6.22 by 5.9…
