This gold ring is formed of three interlinking hoops, the centre one flat on both sides, the two outer hoops flat on one side only; the hoops interlink at the front forming a decorative bezel. Although examples are known, puzzle rings are not common before 1700; in this case, there is no evidence to date this ring pre 1705. J Rudoe British Museum 26/01/2006

A complete Silver gilt finger ring of early Modern dating (early 19th Century). Formed of a broad silver hoop, partly gilded; three horizontal bands with punched decoration applied in clumps. In the absence of anything comparable in the collections of the British Museum it is difficult to date this ring with any accuracy but it is unlikely to be earlier than the 19th century.

An enamelled gold barrel-shaped link of late 18th to early 19th Century dating. This gold link bears traces of blue, green and white enamel forming a pattern of white dots in the centre flanked by a blue band and a wreath in green.

An incomplete silver pin, with a hollow-stamped bird finial, of 19th Century dating. A pin with a hollow-stamped bird finial, in two pieces (the bird is separate); there is nothing comparable in the British Museum collections, but this object is certainly not earlier than the 19th century. As the pin is certainly not earlier than 19th Century, and as it is a single find, it falls outside of the requirements of the Treasure Act 1996 and should not be considered to be Treasure.

Report on potential Treasure for H M Coroner Treasure Number: 2015 T516 Description: Gold ring with circular bezel, decorated with wirework heart above a V shape, the V filled in with enamel, a thin hoop, the shoulders decorated with horizontal engraved lines where they join the bezel.

A gold Post-Medieval finger-ring with external relief decoration. The decoration consists of a delicate geometric design, which may have once held enamel. The interior of the finger-ring bears the inscription 'A FRENDES GYFT' in upper case. Discussion: This finger-ring may have once held enamel, there are 3 similar examples in the British Museum's collection (1961.1202.130, 1961.1202.459 and 2003.0506.1), one of which still retains the original enamel (2003.0506.1).

This ring has been squashed virtually flat so it is difficult to tell what the original section was (ie whether it was more D shaped than it appears now), but the use of the long 'S' in the inscription suggests a 17th century date. Part of the inscription is illegible because if the damage to the ring, but I am fairly sure that the full wording would have been: 'God for ever bless us together'. A similar inscription is recorded by Joan Evans in her book on posy rings of 1930. In this instance the words 'for ever' are missing. The inscription is preceded by what must be a maker's mar…

There is a maker's mark which reads either A F (?) in a rectangular shield or J V (?) if read the other way up. Discussion: The biblical reference suggests this is a betrothal or wedding ring: "16.

Enamelled composite gold finger ring dating to the Post-Medieval period 16th Century AD.
