An incomplete copper-alloy spiral ring probably of Bronze Age period, dating to c. 1500.1150 BC. It is circular in plan and it is formed by three coils of an oval cross-sectioned metal wire; both ends are broken and worn. The surface is very abraded and heavily pitted. A similar object has been recorded on the PAS database as HAMP-7556B3 and SF-761FF6 , see also examples of spiraloid rings in the Near Lewes hoard (SUSS-C5D042) and the Ockham hoard (SUR-B41DB6), both Middle Bronze Age in date.

Description: an incomplete and somewhat damaged gold finger ring dating to the Post-Medieval period, c. 1600-1700. The hoop is 'D' shaped in section and rather worn at its base, distorted on one side due to old damage.

Record ID: SF-1DFD77
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper alloy Roman finger ring. Only the outer part of the ring survives. To either side of the bezel are flattened, outwards curving D-shaped shoulders with small sections of the much narrower hoop attached to each of their outer ends. The bezel has an oval socket extending from its outer face, 4.49mm above the line of the hoop. The edges of this socket are bent out of shape and its interior contains traces of a whitish material, which probably held an intaglio in place originally. The metal is fairly corroded and the breaks are well worn. There are traces of a white me…

Record ID: SF-1DB348
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a Roman copper alloy finger ring with glass intaglio. Only the outer part of the ring survives. The band is D-shaped in cross-section and expands from the shoulders to the outer section, which is the widest part of the ring. In the centre of the outer face of the outer section there is an oval recess, which contains an in situ glass intaglio. Unfortunately the outer surface of this intaglio is cracked and damaged, obscuring any design that may have been engraved on to it originally. The colour of the intaglio appears to have been dark blue, but again is obscured by corro…

Record ID: SF-3BD1D4
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a copper alloy Roman finger ring. Only one shoulder survives. This expanded towards the bezel and is D-shaped in cross-section with a rounded outer face. The bezel is missing, but the surviving edge suggests that it was oval in shape and recessed, probably containing a glass or gem intaglio originally. The fragment is heavily corroded with a green patina and very worn breaks. If the current form of the fragment reflects the original shape of the ring then it probably belongs to Henig's (1974) Type III, which are roughly 1st to 3rd century in date. Length: 16.80mm, width…
