A silver probable finger ring of Modern date, probably twentieth century. It is made of two parts; a strip of silver of D-shaped cross-section forming the hoop, and a separate sub-rectangular bezel, with convex long edges, soldered to the hoop so the hoop crosses the narrower dimension. There is a join in the hoop in the centre of the bezel. The front of the bezel is engraved with a rampant lion holding a bunch of arrows and a sword, on a background which is machine-hatched horizontally and scattered with vertical rectangles. The finger ring hoop is slightly distorted to a square s…

Gold posy ring with a plain band or hoop, D-shaped in section with a flat inner side. There is an incised inscription running around most of the inside of the hoop. It reads 'Constant am I untill I die ', and all the letters are in lower case italics, apart from an initial upper case letter 'C' of Constant and the upper case 'I'. The long 's' in 'ConStant' is more like an 'f '' and this style of 's' stopped being used in about 1780 (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/words/why-f-instead-of-s-in-old-fashioned-spellings). The inscription terminates in a stamped maker's mark 'J C' in Goth…

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…

Gold finger-ring with a D shaped hollow hoop. The interior is damaged which allows one to see the construction. The ring is otherwise completely plane and without any features that would enable one to date it, so it remains undiagnostic.

A silver finger-ring of roughly D-shaped cross-section. The interior of the band is smooth and the exterior has heavily worn engravings. Each shoulder is decorated with four closely spaced hatched lines on either side, projecting downwards (away from the bezel). Further along the hoop are smaller, fainter hatched lines, projecting upwards. The bezel features a series of line that may be a crude monogram of several letters on top of one another, framed on either side by a transverse line from which emanate four short chips, and outside of this another line from which emanates a sunburs…

A complete but disorted gold 'posy' finger ring of post-medieval date. The finger ring has a thin D-sectioned band, plain on the external surface and with an inscription internally that reads 'Honoured for thy vertue' [sic]. This is followed by a makers mark, a monogram of WM in an oval field (this is located at the bend in the ring and is difficult to photograph). The finger ring is similar to an example in Oman (1974) plate 58, 1650 - 1700, and also examples in Grimwade (1982) from 1703 and 1705, although none are an exact likeness and no record of this maker's mark could be found i…

A gold posy ring of post medieval date, late 17th century to early 18th century. The ring is circular in plan with a D-shaped cross section.

The inside of the ring has an inscription in an italic script which reads "Love is the Bond of Peace". There is a makers mark at the start of the inscription with the letters I and H in a rectangular frame. Judy Rudoe of the British Museum comments "I think the mark might be IH rather than HI, see AF 1320 and 1961,1202.283 in BM. The mark is n…

A gold finger ring with intaglio setting surviving of mid.19th century AD date. This finger-ring survives in excellent condition. Disclaimed as not treasure. Further identification given by Judy Rudoe of the British Museum. "...it has the papal keys on the bottom of the hoop and probably dates to the middle decades of the 19th. The intaglio appears to show a standing bull (background) and a horse in the foreground - it is difficult to judge if the gem is of earlier date than the ring (but even if it was, it still would not be treasure)..."

Gold finger ring with banded agate intaglio set into the oval bezel with moulded scrolled motifs on the sides of the bezel. The hoop was probably cast as a standard pattern, and then the intaglio separately commissioned and fitted to the bezel. The banded agate is dark brown with a white band which divides the two devices that are engraved into the stone. The device on the left is a bearded bust with a rounded hat edged with crested ermine, facing right, and the device to the right of the band is a goat passant, moving right. The bearded bust may represent a Saracen which denotes t…

A gold 'posy' type finger ring which survives in a complete, but distorted, condition. The band is of D-shaped section and of roughly equal width and thickness throughout. The relief-moulded decoration on the outer surface is comprised of two types of panel which alternate and interlock with one another. One of these panels resembles a capital letter 'I', divided in half by a horizontal ridge, either side of which is an equal-armed cross. The other type of panel is slightly longer and has outward-bowing sides, including, at the centre of either end, a rounded projection. The centre…
