County: Warwickshire

Fragment of a silver-gilt finger ring comprising an oval bezel, in which would have once been set a gemstone, and a small section of both shoulders. From the parts of the shoulders that are visible, the hoop appears to have had circular decoration and it is on these parts of the ring that traces of gilding can be seen. In the absence of any clear distinguishing features to suggest the ring has a dating to pre-1707, this ring is classed as not Treasure.

A copper alloy finger ring fragment which is probably post medieval in date. It is 22.7mm long, 13.2mm wide and 3.7mm thick. The object is a little less than half of a finger ring with the bezel and shoulders surviving. The hoop is broken and the breaks appear to be old. The bezel is rectangular and has an oval hollow in it for the setting which is missing, though much white paste, presumably the glue, does survive. The hoop widens towards the bezel and there is a rectangular stop on each side of the bezel. This design suggests the post medieval date as it is not something commonly see…

A copper alloy finger ring which probably dates from the Post Medieval period. The ring has a diameter of 19.4mm and is 2.9mm wide. It is D shaped in section and the hoop is just 0.9mm thick. There is no bezel and the ring is not decorated. A join in the hoop is not visible. The ring has a patina which is brown and glossy but it only survives in places. An undecorated ring is impossible to date securely, but this ring was found in association with another, wider and decorated finger ring which is likely to date from the sixteenth or seventeenth century, so dating by association is possible.

A post medieval, gold posy ring with d-shaped hoop, which is slightly out-of-shape but remains intact. Inscribed to the inside 'x BE x FAITHFUL'. There are very small traces of black enamel within the lettering. The style of the lettering is consistent with other rings of this date. The motto is recorded in Joan Evans, English Posies and Posy Rings (1931), p.25, although the inscription is in lower-case italics and there is only a single 'l' to the end of 'faithful'. One ring within the British Museum's collection has a similar inscription but this reads 'Be.faithfull.and.louing…

A gold mourning ring with a single skull engraved on the outer surface. It is inscribed to the inside "S R Aged 76 obijt 19 Aug 64". This is followed by a maker's mark consisting of the letters "TC" interlocked vertically in a punch in the shape of a shield. Mourning rings were made in commemoration of a recently deceased relative or friend. Money was usually left in wills with which to have mourning rings made. The inscription therefore refers to an individual with the initials SR, who died at the age of 76 on 19th August 1664. The precious metal content of the ring fulfils the req…

An incomplete and corroded cast copper-alloy signet ring of post-medieval date (c. 17th century AD). Much of the lower half of the hoop (W.: 3.4mm, Th.: 1.7mm) is missing as a result of old damage. The hoop flares (expands) at the shoulders of the ring to form the bezel. The flat bezel is intact and oval in form (L.: 17.6mm, W.: 14.0mm, min. Th.: 1.9mm). Its device is sunken so that it can be used for sealing. The device is within an incised border and consists of a central heart, deeply set and probably cast, pierced by two engraved arrows in saltire, with the fletchings uppermost. …

An incomplete silver-gilt signet ring Date: Probably first half 16th century Description: Silver-gilt signet ring with lozenge-shaped bezel and faceted shoulders. The bezel has a beaded border and is engraved with the initials TS. Discussion: The decoration on the shoulders and the lozenge bezel are a late medieval type, but the lettering is more 16th-century in style, hence the later dating. Metal content: The precious metal content of the ring fulfils the requirements of the Treasure Act in that it is greater than 10%. J. Rudoe British Museum

A thin gold band is engraved on the exterior with a skull with cross-hatching either side; the inscription inside reads: 'Not lost but gone before', with maker's mark TS in a rectangle. It has not proved possible to identify the maker's mark from available sources, and as this is type which goes on into the second quarter of the 18th century, there is not enough evidence to confirm a pre-1708 date. The ring can not be securely dated to pre-1708 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

An incomplete cast copper alloy finger ring, probably post-medieval in date. The ring has a split bezel. The hoop has a D-shaped section which expands into a flattened, triangular terminal. Only one terminal survives as the other has broken off. The flat end of the surviving terminal indicates that the bezel must have been split, as it does not attach to the other terminal. The terminal has been decorated with a stamped design, which comprises a raised line down the centre with arches either side with a pellet in each field. The decoration appears to continue around the hoop, but i…

A complete cast copper-alloy finger ring, probably post-medieval in date – it is also possible that this ring is Roman in date, but the original surface has been cleaned off, so it is not possible to say for certain. The hoop has a rectangular section which expands into flaring shoulders, which in turn expand into a rectangular bezel. The bezel is undecorated but either side of the bezel has been incised with two parallel lines.

Cast cu-alloy post-medieval finger ring, probably dating from the later 17th or 18th century. The finger ring was simple and did not bear any decoration except two grooves close to the outer edges. Both of these edges are now the most worn parts of the ring and suffer from bronze disease. The only markings are on the inside of the hoop; two letters which look like a 'T' and an 'I' or 'J'. These could have probably been the maker's mark (possibly his initials).
