Treasure case: 2006 T413 gold circular fitting This broad flat band has no bevelling or shaping at the edges which one would normally expect in a finger ring, suggesting that it is more likely to be a fitting of some kind. In the absence of any other diagnostic features such as decoration or inscription, there is no evidence to date this object pre-1706 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

A gold fragment of an artefact of an undiagnostic date. It is in the form of a penannular wire loop which appears to have been hammered to shape and may have originally been circular but has been crushed and appears to have been deliberately cut at both ends. It seems likely that it is a jewellery fragment and could be a crushed ring fragment or off an ear ring. It is possibly Roman as it was found adjacent to an amount of silver denarii and Roman pottery. However it is undiagnostic and cannot be securely dated to any period therefore it does not classify as treasure. The length is 20…

A gold jewellery fitting of Post-Medieval date, 16th-17th century. Dora Thornton of the British Museum writes: 'The main body of the artefact is made of thin gold wire, each end recurving on itself to create a loop and the form is of a long bodied s-shape. Attached at one of these looped ends are a further two gold wire loops (so forming a chain link). A five pronged circular shape (akin to an opened umbrella) has been threaded through the main body to the other end and has been soldered on at the base of the loop. At the end of each prong is circular opening. This element has bee…

~~A gold composite jewellery fitting. The back plate is formed by an oval sheet with a twisted rope like border. Three circular sectioned wire loops are present on either side. These have been soldered to a collar made from a strip of gold, set at right angles, running around the inside of the rope border. This collar would have secured the original gem in place. The gem is now missing. This item shares similarities with items of Roman and Early Medieval period, for example: IOW-05E330 (2014 T586), PAS-D3A974 (2009 T103) and SWYOR-4637C5 (2010 T573). However the curators at the Bri…

A complete post medieval gold fitting of possible 17th century dating. The object is possibly a jewellery fitting. The main body of the object is in the shape of an hourglass contained within a rectangular border. The hourglass and the uprights are roughly cylindrical in plan. The object is not decorated but the surface of the hourglass and uprights have been covered in tiny indentations giving the impression of a pitted surface. The uprights to the sides of the hourglass form along with the hourglass itself have raised collars at the midpoint; the collars on the uprights are bands of …

There is a projection off of the circular body, measuring c.10.2mm in length, which is…

Medieval gold jewellery fitting from a composite piece of jewellery. A gold disc back-plate, the reverse flat with a central integral rivet surrounded by file marks, with a gold setting on the front formed from four cusped sides which rise to form a rectangular collet. The collet holds a rectangular purple stone with a flat or nearly flat upper face, almost certainly amethyst, now pushed back into the setting. The join between the sides of the collet and the back-plate can be seen as a faint line around the edge. The fitting is extremely similar although slightly smaller, to one at…

Detached circular gold and garnet setting. The object has a gold backplate to which is soldered three concentric beaded wires; the outer and inner are very finely beaded and the central wire has larger beads. This is a common arrangement for Anglo-Saxon filigree. Within the innermost beaded ring is a plain collar which rises up the sides and slightly over the top of a circular garnet. This is dirty, and although the flash of the flat top of the garnet can be seen, it is impossible to see if there is a foil beneath. The backplate is featureless apart from a central roughly circular rec…

Enamelled roundel, with a gold backplate and a gold outer wall which is very perfectly and neatly soldered on, but at one point now torn and distorted. Extremely slender internal cell walls of gold pick out a human figure from the waist up, holding out the left arm and with a further curving wall perhaps depicting the right arm. Both cells of the figure, head/body/left arm and right arm, are filled with dark green enamel, and there is white opaque enamel outside. This roundel is about the right size to come from a finger-ring, and circular roundels of similar size are known from …
