Roman silver finger ring, bent and misshapen. Originally a circular hoop of rectangular section, swelling to one sharply carinated shoulder and another plain. There is an ovular bezel which is plain and undecorated. The edges of the ring are very crudely finished. Discussion: the ring seems to have been unfinished before loss or discard. Date: c. 2nd to 3rd century AD Note: this item is made substantially of silver and is more than 300 years old, and thus qualifies as treasure as stipulated in the Treasure Act 1996.

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…

A copper-alloy finger ring of Henig type II dating 1st-3rd century A.D. It has an oval recess 14.60mm x 11.74mm and c.2.98mm deep that would have held an intaglio, which is now missing. It is difficult to determine whether the ring was originally a continuous band of metal or whether it was designed to terminate in rounded off ends that met at the centre of the back (underneath of the finger) almost but not quite touching, or rounded off ends that over-lapped each other one above the other. Currently the ends over-lap each other one above the other but the uncertainty arises due to on…
