A base silver finger-ring, a rather crude and simple type with rectangular bezel bordered by two pairs of engraved vertical lines. It could be Medieval (Beverley Nenk pers.comm.). Judy Rudoe does not recognise it as an obvious Post-Medieval type. The finger-ring is slightly squashed and measures 22.09x21.70mm (internal 19.95x20.44mm). It weighs 2.8g. The hoop is D-shaped in cross-section while the bezel is flat. The shoulders have V-shaped cut-outs to either side.

A Medieval silver finger ring dating from c. AD 1200-1350. The ring is a single hoop with no join visible and with a rectangular cross section.

There are a number of artefacts with the same inscription recorded on the database including SUR-099F44 and DOR-B80705.

A cast silver finger ring of Medieval date, c. 1150-1350. The ring is subcircular in plan, with some bending to the hoop. The bezel is widened, and the shoulders taper smoothly to the base of the hoop. The bezel bears an oval depression to take a missing stone. The ring is small and was probably for wear by a woman or child, though this does not preclude its use by a man on the third knuckle.

Complete silver finger ring, with one break through the hoop. The hoop is octagonal in shape with a rectangular section.

The style of the lettering indicates a medieval date. Dimensio…
