Within this rests a second band of gold, unfixed and freely rotatable within the channel. To the eye this appears to be a different alloy of gold, lacking the pink/red tint. A flat oval red gold bezel is applied to this inner ring, i…

A post medieval gold finger ring with four faceted stones that may - or may not - be emeralds. A fifth socket, which presumably held a further stone, is empty. The four remaing stones are held by a claw style of mount. The ring has no inscription or maker's mark. The scroll-work of the bevel and shoulders, the faceting of the stones, and the claw mounts suggests a late Georgian or early Victorian date of manufature. While this find was reported as possible treasure, the decision of the relevant curator at the British Museum was that this is not treasure, due to the style of the rin…

A gold post-medieval finger ring dating to the late 18th or early 19th century with a reused Roman stone or glass intaglio. The hoop is circular and attaches to either end of the bezel. The bezel is oval with a domed oval setting held in place with a raised rim. The gem is cut to a cabochon shape and appears to be a brown stone, probably sard. The device is the Graeco-Egyptian god Harpocrates holding a cornucopia and with his finger to his lips commanding silence. For the subject see H.B.

A gold finger-ring with turquoise enamel bezel. The exterior of the band is decorated with seven smaller oval turquoise enamel settings, spaced at regular intervals. Between each of these settings the band narrows and expands to form a collared effect. On the reverse of the setting are series of lines radiating from the centre to create a scalloped appearance. Discussion: After discussions with colleagues at the British Museum, it is our view that the decoration on this ring indicates that is likely to date from the mid to late-Georgian period. It is broadly similar to rings in th…

A complete and slightly squashed post-medieval gold ear ring of 19th century date or later. The ear ring is composed by a 15.54mm diameter hollow ring and a second D-shaped smaller element which is wrapped around it.

To the top of the plate is attached the hook which has been bent on itself. To the end of the hook is a small rounded knop. The ear ring appears to be light weight and it is likely that both elements are hollow inside. The D-shape …

A Post Medieval gold memento mori ring, dating to around the year AD1680. The object is D-shaped and inscribed on the internal surface with a skull engraved on the outer surface. The inscription reads: S : C : ob : 17 : March : 80 - [initials] died 17th March 1680. There is also a maker's stamp which appears to be a letter P. Judy Rudoe at the British Museum notes that when the first two numbers are omitted in the inscriptions on memento mori rings, the date is 17th century. Thus the coin was produced upon the death of an individual in AD1680.

An incomplete silver seal matrix depicting (probably) a stylised representation of Queen Anne who reigned from 1702-14. The object has an oval matrix with a groove flanking the outside edge and depicts a female bust at the centre. To the reverse is an oval platform from which rises a rectangular-sectioned handle (11x8mm), narrowing to a 5.5x3.5mm waist before expanding again to 7.5x4.9mm. Here it meets an inversion of itself, narrowing to a recent-ish break measuring 3.8x2.3mm. The seal matrix survives to a height of 14.7mm and weighs 8.52g. The matrix itself measures 18.8x17.1x2.5mm.

Silver ring with scroll work surrounding the bezel inscribed with a figure with arms outstretched and surrounding halo. Possibly inscribed with the letters I J or possibly a T and L W inscribed on the reverse. The inscribed lettering maybe the owners initials and the form of the lettering would suggest a late Post-medieval date 1750-1900AD. The ring is religious in its motif probably Catholic, depicting the Holy Mother Mary and possibly a ring for miraculous protection. In the absence of any obvious parallels it cannot be confirmed that this is more than 300 years old. Therefore as th…
