An incomplete cast copper-alloy finger ring of Medieval date. The bezel, stone and the shoulders of the hoop survive, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The bezel is rectangular in form with traces of gilding and a central oval setting. This contains a blue/purple/grey glass(?) cabochon that has suffered from some post-depositional damage but is mostly complete. At each side of the bezel are the remains of the shoulders of the hoop. These are D-shaped in section and terminate in old breaks close to the bezel, the precise form of the hoop uncertain. The surviving fragment mea…

Description: A broken and incomplete silver medieval finger ring. The inside of the hoop is flat and undecorated. The outside of the hoop is bevelled to give a triangular cross-section, with two facets, each carrying a poorly engraved inscription. The lower half reads, in black-letter script: * ihesus nazaren... with a quatrefoil within a lozenge between the words. This is clearly the start of the inscription Ihesus Nazarenus or Jesus of Nazareth, with a small part of the ring missing. This half of the inscription is based on the outside of the ring, so it occupies the lower half. …

A large copper alloy finger ring dating to the medieval period. The finger ring is now oval in plan and has a break in the hoop. The bezel is a moulded decorative feature but what it depicts is hard to see; there is an inscription around the outer hoop but again this is hard to read because of wear. Some of the lettering appears to (...)EA(...)RVS R and it may be an inscription related to Christ as Jesus of Nazareth, however this is just speculation. Suggested date: 14th or 15th century AD.

TREASURE CASE 2013 T920: Medieval silver finger-ring with incised decoration and zoomorphic style terminals. The ring is made of a thin rectangular-sectioned strip of silver which is broader in width at the bezel and tapers towards the terminals. The ring is penannular in shape so that the two zoomorphic terminals which form the hoop of the ring are not joined. It is not clear if this penannular shape was the original design of the finger ring as one terminal has a rough irregular edge and the other is sharp to the touch and not worn. The ring is sub-oval in outline having being disto…

A late medieval silver-gilt iconographic finger ring dating to the 15th century. The ring is iconographic in form and has a double-facetted bezel engraved with the images of two saints. The engraving is crude in execution and the saints are difficult to identify. It is possible that they represent on the left facet Saint Mary Magdalene with an ointment pot, or Saint Barbara with a tower, and on the right facet Saint John the Evangelist holding a chalice. However, as the two saints are almost identical in engraving, aside from their attributes, and as the figure on the left facet is a …
