A gold 'bulla' pendant of early Anglo-Saxon date. The pendant is circular with a domed centre. The reverse was also domed, but both faces are now dented. A suspension loop is wide and flat and is decorated with two longitudinal grooves, leaving the edges and the centre of the strip raised. The pendant was made from a single piece of sheet metal which was cut into the shape of two circular discs joined by the band now forming the suspension loop. It is likely the grooves on the loop were added next, along with the domes being formed, and then the loop was bent round a form, bringing th…

A small gem-set gold pendant comprising a translucent purple oval glass gem, of plano-convex cross-section, set in an oval gold frame 2.3mm wide, encircled by a beaded gold wire. The beading is very neat and regular. There is no backplate to the pendant, allowing the gem to be seen from both faces. The suspension loop, made from a tapered gold strip, is quite rudimentarily attached to the frame and is atypically orientated (running front to back rather than side to side), may have been an ancient repair. The lack of a backplate rules out an early-medieval date and the pendant is proba…

Probably a gold Roman ear ring of Allason-Jones type 2e. The ear ring is a loop of gold wire (2.15mm thick). There is a butted joint which may be soldered, or the ring may have originally been penannular. The loop is decorated with incised transverse lines which run right round the wire. The entire loop is covered with these lines. A plainer penannular example of Allason-Jones type 1 is 2010 T287. In terms of age and as the object contains a minimum of 10% precious metal it qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Treasure case: 2012 T53 Description: Post-Medieval gold plated finger-ring. Exterior of ring is decorated with three horizontal rows of bosses, interior plain. Discussion: This is a puzzling ring for which we have found no parallels. The closest example in the British Museum collections is 1956,1014.1, which has diagonal rows of bosses creating a similar effect with a double row of capital letter inscription in English on the interior, the lettering consistent with a dating of 16th - 17th century.

Description: A complete 16th or 17th century gold finger ring. The ring is cast so that the hoop is formed from sixteen domes or hemispheres, i.e. it has a semicircular section. One dome is elongated and probably acted as the bezel. The inner surface of the hoop is inscribed with the legend " * ALWAYES ONE >>>". Discussion: The ring can be compared to ESS-EDA7E6 (Treasure case 2004 T353: dated 16th - 17th century) which is of similar design, but with a different legend. For inscription comparison see Treasure case 2011 T837, PAS ID: WILT-8FB813. Dimensions: Thickness: 4.43 mm
