Record ID: CAMHER-961244
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Medieval finger-ring, complete but distorted. The cusped setting holds a blue stone, probably a sapphire. The hoop is decorated along its two sides with a series of quatrefoils. The back of the hoop is left plain. Inside the hoop is an inscription, which reads: en bon foey The last word is likely to be a version of "foi", which would give the meaning "in good faith". A more substantial gold ring with a turquoise held in a similar setting was found among the jewels deposited with the Fishpool Hoard (BM MME 1967, 12-8, 2). The ring is gold, and dates from the fifteenth century…

Gold finger ring with square bezel, within which is set a stone. There is a slight reddish tint to the surface but non-destructive X-ray analysis has confirmed that this ring has a gold content of 89-92%, which is the equivalent of 22 carat gold. The stone, which is badly cracked, has been identified by Raman spectroscopy as quartz and could be referred to as a faintly banded agate. The d-section hoop expands at the shoulders, forming an openwork pattern of three prongs, all with geometric decoration. The ring weighs 8.84 grams. Stylistic features date this ring to 19th-20th centuries…

Gold foliate accessory. It is made of fine pieces of gold, is broken in places and is therefore very delicate. Within a small circular recess to the front and bottom of this piece is green enamel. The presence of four loops at the corners suggests that it may have been sewn onto fabrics, though it was more than likely part of a necklace or bracelet. It is in the style of 19th-century revivalist jewellery and therefore is not classed as Treasure.
