An incomplete circular gold and garnet cloisonné setting, probably once part of a larger composite object. The gold base-plate is circular and plain on the reverse.

Blobs of gold close to the rivet most probably represent the remnants of a gold tube forming the means of attachment to another object (see Discussion). The setting has a thick, triple frame consisting of a thick band of twisted, gold beaded wire between two rings of single, untwisted gold beaded wire. The outermost ring of beaded wire has a sligh…

A medieval finger-ring consisting of a simple band with raised borders. It is inscribed with the names of the three magi: *YASPAR . MELCHIOR . BALTASAR The names of the magi were believed to have curative powers in the middle ages. They were considered especially effective in cases of epilepsy. The finger-ring dates from the fifteenth century and examination at the British Museum has confirmed the metal to be gold. The object contains at least 10 per cent of that precious metal by weight.

A medieval gold finger-ring consisting of a slender hoop which gradually widens, extending into a twin bezel set with a turquoise and a garnet.

A gold, medieval finger-ring, the hoop decorated with a series of letter S's juxtaposed with knots, a continuous band running between them. The background is heavily grooved, while the border is left plain. The diminutive size of the ring suggests that it was designed either for a child or a young woman. It measures 16mm in diameter. The ring dates from the fifteenth century and examination at the British Museum has established the gold content to be in excess of ten per cent of its weight.

A medieval gold finger-ring, with a four-cusped setting containing a transparent imitation 'gemstone'.

A medieval finger-ring set with a garnet. The slender hoop is triangular in section creating two distinct registers which carry a complicated inscription, the meaning of which is not clear.

It is punctuated with colons and divided by three evenly spaced four-petalled flowers. The top register reads: + I : E S (reversed): (the following letters are then inverted) FLVR: V I (flower) V I F L (reversed) V (flower ) I E: S + The bottom register reads: I F …

A gold finger ring with intaglio setting surviving of mid.19th century AD date. This finger-ring survives in excellent condition. Disclaimed as not treasure. Further identification given by Judy Rudoe of the British Museum. "...it has the papal keys on the bottom of the hoop and probably dates to the middle decades of the 19th. The intaglio appears to show a standing bull (background) and a horse in the foreground - it is difficult to judge if the gem is of earlier date than the ring (but even if it was, it still would not be treasure)..."
