Description: Undated gold ring. Slightly irregular section, D-shaped externally with a median arris internally. The internal surface is irregular and not well finished / smoothed in some areas.

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
?BA gold finger-ring. The ring is plain though decorated with a pinched midrib running around its circumference. The midrib is beaten flat in some places, and in others has formed a break. The surface is not smooth although the quality of the metal is very good. Diam 20mm. Thickness less than 0.5mm. Width of band 7-8mm. Weighs 2.08g. The ring was squashed when found, and was taken to a jeweller who is responsible for its present circular shape. The jeweller perfomed the acid test and determined the ring is 24ct.
