A complete gold posy ring dating to the post medieval period. The object is circular in plan and D-shaped in section.

The outside of the ring is smooth and undecorated with a matt finish, possibly due to being in the ground. There is an inscripton on the inner face of the ring which reads NO FREND TO FAITH with small saltires in between each word and two short parallel lines after FAITH. The lettering used for the ins…

A complete gold finger ring dating to the post medieval or modern period. The object is circular in plan and circular in section with no decoration. There are some stamped marks on the inner surface of the ring but these are difficult to decipher. Judy Rudoe of the British Museum says "I cannot decipher the stamped marks inside, and the shape looks recent, so this is one where you say not enough evidence to date pre 1714."

An incomplete gold mount, possibly of medieval date (AD 1350-1550). The mount is a slightly convex sexfoil in the form of a flower with six petals and circular recessed centre. Each of the "petals" has a hammered pellet at each side and a central incised linear decoration which creates the impression of foliage .The reverse of the mount is slightly concave with a recessed aspect centrally which is the result of a broken projection/spur which would have been used to affix the mount to clothing. A similar example is illustrated in Egan, Dress Accessories, 2002, P 243, no 1297.

The lunula is in two parts and nearly complete, only missing one of the circular terminals. The object is made of gold and so the precious metal content is more than 10%. The lunula is semi-circular in plan although both parts have been folded. There is one part which does not have a terminal and it is this section which is less folded making the semi-circular shape more obvious. The widest section of the lunula is where the two pieces have broken apart and then the object tapers towards the terminals. The section which still has a circular terminal is more severely folded and ther…
