A finger ring examined under the Treasure Act by the British Museum. Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated an approximate gold content for the ring of 50% and silver content of approximately 47%; it weighs 4.78 grams. The ring has a flat, ovoid bezel drawn out at the shoulders into two narrow, wiry strips tapering to points, which were originally wound together to form the hoop, but are now separated; diameter of bezel, 20 mm (max). The decoration of the bezel appears to have been cast (rather than punched as would be usual on Viking-period rings) and con…

A complete but distorted gold probable finger ring. Consisting of a simple hoop with a rectangular section. The outer face is smooth however in one area there are tiny traces of possible vertical grooves, these may be original decoration or due to damage/wear, they are extremely faint. Discussion: This finger ring is very undiagnostic and could possibly be Roman or later in date, but it is impossible to certify that it was deposited prior to 1708 as stipulated in the Treasure Act. Dimensions: Measuring 17.16mm by 15.33mm externally and 15.53mm by 13.61mm internally, the hoop is …

?BA gold finger-ring. The ring is plain though decorated with a pinched midrib running around its circumference. The midrib is beaten flat in some places, and in others has formed a break. The surface is not smooth although the quality of the metal is very good. Diam 20mm. Thickness less than 0.5mm. Width of band 7-8mm. Weighs 2.08g. The ring was squashed when found, and was taken to a jeweller who is responsible for its present circular shape. The jeweller perfomed the acid test and determined the ring is 24ct.

A gold object, probably a distorted finger ring of uncertain date. Curator's report: A strip of bright yellow pitted gold that has been bent six times forming three rough (un-unintended) loops. The edges of some sections appear to have been worked, being slightly rounded. Discussion: This strip of gold is long enough to have fitted round a small finger but there are no diagnostic features that could provide a date. Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it can not be securely dated to pre-1708 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996 …

A gold finger ring of uncertain date. It has a plain circular band that is sub-circular in section with a flat inner edge. The inner edge has several indentations and pock marks, presumably caused during production, but apparently no maker's marks or hallmarks. The ring measures 17.36mm in internal diameter, 22.84mm in external diameter, and weighs 8.58g. This plain gold ring is a beach find from close to a known Roman site. It is therefore possible that it could date to any time from the Roman period onwards. It was found over 20 years ago and is a single stray find, it therefore doe…

Gold ornamental ring from Kineton, Warwickshire. This ring, formed of a plain round-section wire, was at the time of discovery felt to be completely undiagnostic, with no evidence to date it more than 300 years old, and because of this it was felt to lie outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Subsequently, specialists have had cause to examine the photograph again. The slight bend at both sides of the ring, giving it a slightly angled appearance in side view, gives similarities between this piece and examples of V-shaped finger-rings attributed to the Iron Age (e.g. 2016T…

Description: Misshapen small plain gold finger-ring. The hoop is a low D-shape in cross-section, with the interior flat or very slightly convex and the exterior more distinctly convex. Date: There is no inner inscription or makers mark on the ring, therefore it is not possible to date this finger-ring. The undiagnostic nature of this find makes it impossible to date to pre-1709 and as such it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Caroline Barton The British Museum 28/01/2010
