A gold posy ring dating to the post medieval period, c. AD 1550 to 1650. The object is sub-circular in plan and D-shaped in section. The edges of the ring are quite sharp suggesting that it was not worn for long before being lost. There is a small nick in one side of the ring and it is slightly misshapen but this could be plough damage. The outside of the ring is smooth and undecorated. There is an inscription on the inside of the ring which reads LOVE + GOD + ABOVE + ALL with the first L in ALL retrograde and small crosses between each word. Roman lettering is used which suggest a…

A gold penannular ring of near-circular cross section. Bands of yellow and paler, silver-rich gold are clearly visible on the inside of the band, less so on the outer circumference where this decorative effect is very worn.

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

TREASURE CASE : 2014 T783. Scientific analysis: Surface metal analysis of the ingot was undertaken at the British Museum, which indicated a metal content of approximately 42% gold, 47% silver and 11% copper. This surface analysis is likely to give a slight overestimate of the precious metal content of the core metal, as corrosion alters the composition of the surface of the ingot by preferentially leaching out copper. Description: A complete gold and silver-alloy ingot of Early-Medieval date. The ingot is sub-rectangular with rounded bevelled edges resulting in an ovate section. Th…

Report by Beverley Nenk (Curator of Medieval Collections, 10 July 2015): A late Medieval gold iconographic finger-ring with a flat rectangular bezel engraved with the figure of a male saint. The hoop is formed from a twisted cable with diagonal beaded ridges, and the shoulders and sides are engraved with foliate decoration. The ring was probably originally enamelled, but no trace of enamelling now survives. The finger-ring dates to the fifteenth century.

A gold finger-ring of Medieval date (AD 1300-1500). The object is a flat-sectioned strip of gold made into an incomplete ring. One of the two ends of the gold strip does not appear to be broken, and both ends have a central rectangular projection. This may suggest that the projection from the right-hand side is missing a loop into which the left-hand side projection would have secured - but no parallel is known for this. There is an inscription in black-letter script consisting of three words running along the outer surface. It is difficult to read, but Dr Malcolm Jones has seen an…

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.

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.
