Medieval to post-medieval gold finger ring. The oval-sectioned band expands smoothly from the rear to shoulders which flair before narrowing sharply to join the bezel. The shoulders are engraved to leave a foliate design in low relief, perhaps originally reserved on an inlayed field, although no inlay survives. The bezel is in the form of a high quatrefoil collet with scalloped sides set with a pink or red table cut stone (perhaps a ruby). For similar examples see Oman (1974, pl.26, a, b and pl.27, b for a broadly similar example with enamel). Date: 16th century. Dimens…

The pin head is hollow and globular, with a circular hole at each end surrounded by an annulet of beaded wire; the upper and lower half are separated by a border of a line of beaded wire either side of what appears now to be a plain wire, but on closer inspection is actually a beaded wire worn down so that the beads have almost disappeared. This triple-strand border probably conceals a soldered join. Both halves are decorated alike, with two-ply twisted wire forming three pairs of opposed S- …
