Record ID: SUSS-6F2A65
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A gold ring of uncertain date. The ring has been badly damaged by the plough and as a result has been pulled out of shape. The ring is complete and still roughly circular (maximum diameter 23.09mm) and the gold is very thin (only 1.03mm thick). The maximum width of the hoop is about 4.7mm. There is no decoration on the ring, and it does not look worn; it may have been a decorative binding ring, for example from a walking stick, instead of a finger-ring.

Gold ring, 23mm in diameter, 2.5mm wide and 1mm thick. The ring is in good condition with a good gold patina and weighs 2.47 grams. The ring is rectangular in cross-section and is formed of rectangular flat areas which curve at each junction forming a circular ring. It is not necessarily a finger-ring and cannot be dated with any confidence.

Record ID: LEIC-9F1BF3
Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A thin gold ring shaped object, with ornate spiralled design and oval lilac stone setting. Dark areas indicate that this object could consist of gold leaf over another material. This may not have originally been a finger-ring; the material is extremely thin, too thin to conceivably be used to construct a finger-ring. It is indicated that the item has been straightened and glued, making identification difficult. The object is not in its original state and so identification in the current condition could be misleading and therefore there is no evidence to date to pre 1711.

A gold ring or hoop, damaged. The ring has been pinched so that it has a drop-shaped plan. The ring is circular in section, but with a narrow flattened face internally. The surface of the ring has small nicks and irregularities suggestive of a general lack of finishing after casting and damage sustained during its use prior to deposition. No hallmarks or other identifying features are visible.

Treasure case 2009 T626 Description: Plain gold band; slightly misshapen. Flattened edges on the band indicate that this is a fitting rather that a finger-ring. There are no diagnostic features to this fitting and as such it is impossible to date. Dimensions: Diameter: 14mm. Thickness: 1mm. Weight: 1.2g Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it cannot be securely dated to pre-1709 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Treasure case No : 2010 T106 Gold finger ring or fitting (?) Date: Undiagnostic Description: A gold ring of uncertain date. The hoop of the ring has been bent and distorted out of shape. The section is rectangular, but the corners are crude and slightly rolled.

The external surface has a slightly raised central line, which is chamfered to the edges. Discussion: The uneven edges of the ring may indicate that this …

Description: Undated gold ring. Slightly irregular section, D-shaped externally with a median arris internally. The internal surface is irregular and not well finished / smoothed in some areas. Date: Undated. Dimensions: Internal diameter 16 - 17mm. External diameter 22 - 22.5mm. Width of band 4 - 4.5mm. Thickness of band 2.5 - 3mm. Weight 6.7g. Discussion: The lack of diagnostic features make this ring difficult to date. The irregular section of the band would be unusual for a post-medieval finger ring, the form and plainness would be unusual for a ring of Roman to Medieval dat…

A gold ring, possibly fitting rather than a finger ring. The ring has a sub-rectangular section and is undecorated. It is now distorted into a sub-rectangular shape in plan. There are no maker's marks or hallmarks, nor is there an obvious seam in the band. Post-medieval finger rings are often decorated but even if they are not they usually have a D-shaped cross section and thicker band. It is also seemingly too plain to be of Roman or early-medieval date, so as this ring is generally undiagnostic and out of context it is not possible to securely date it to pre- AD 1714, therefore it f…

It has no marks or decoration. Dora Thornton and Judy Rudhoe of the Brotish Museum have confirmed the ring is undiagnostic and therefore cannot be processed as a Treasure find.

A gold annular ring with spiral rope motif probably dating to the medieval period, c.AD1200-1500. The annular ring is sub-rectangular in cross-section with a flat reverse. Along the reverse are short longitudinal etches. In the centre of the annular frame is a flat, gold foil with a central circular perforation. The foil is narrow at one end and expands into a sub-ovoid form. Both ends of the gold foil were originally soldered to the frame; only one end remains attached. The hole has been punched from the reverse side. There are minute scratch marks or cross etchings along the front of…

A miniature socketed bronze axe attached to a ring of gold wire. Miniature models of socketed axes in bronze are a well known type of object. They appear to be particularly common in Wiltshire and surrounding counties. Although a small number are known to have been made in the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age, the majority date to the Roman period. They are usually interpreted as votive models or amulets. Analysis of the gold from which the ring was made suggests it is a Roman object. Dimensions and metal content: Axe: length: 19mm; width across blade: 9mm. Ring: 11mm x 8mm, made from w…

2006 T185: gold ornamental ring from Alcester, Warwickshire. This ring in the form of a thin flat band is decorated with a repeat punched geometric pattern. It has no parallels with any finger ring in our collections and may be a fitting of some kind. It unlikely to be more than 300 years old and therefore it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. J. Rudoe The British Museum

A posy ring of gold, the inner part of the band inscribed 'I WISH AND WANT'. The outer part of the band is incised with ovoids, themselves filled with concentric smaller ovoids, formed from raised curvilinear designs. These assemblies are connected together by a thicker central circumferential band. The negative spaces between the raised designs are filled with single trefoil-like raised pieces. Similar inscriptions, permutations of the phrase 'I WISH AND/BUT WANT' (as evidenced on KENT-182620) can be found in other posy rings recorded through PAS. Though dating is hard, the style of …

TREASURE CASE 2016 T921. A complete gold ring of probably post-medieval to modern date. The shape of this object suggests that this is more likely to be a decorative mount or fitting of some kind rather than a finger-ring, as it does not have the D-shaped cross section usually seen with finger rings. The ring is formed from a strip of gold and has central circumferential beading between teo raised ribs which run around the upper and lower outer edge of the ring. There is no internal markings or inscription. This object may be a decorative fitting for a knife or a walking cane (for exa…
