Record ID: DEV-3C2B3B
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: MODERN
County: Devon

Discussion: After discussions with colleagues at the British Museum, it is our view that the decoration on this ring indicates that is likely to date from the mid to late-Georgian period. It is broadly similar to rings in th…

A gold finger ring, now distorted and slightly damaged. The band is narrow and plain and bears the following legend within: Content is a treasure. The ring bears a maker's mark which reads TB.

Gold ring in the form of a plain broad band of flattened D cross section. The inner face is engraved with legend X I LYKE MY CHOYS in Roman capitals. The hoop has an internal diameter of 19mm; external diameter of 21.6mm; band width 5.7mm; band thickness of 0.9mm; weight 6.41g. The finger ring from Llangunllo has a form which is hard to date, existing in the fifteenth century, and continuing up to the present.
