A late medieval silver gilt finger ring. The double bezel measures 8.99mm in width. One side is decorated with an incised feather or possibly a palm leaf. The other side has a roughly incised plant form, possibly a lily. The shoulders are decorated with pairs of oval panels half hatched half plain.

An incomplete medieval gold finger ring dating late 12th century - 13th century. This finger ring has a broad, flat hoop and a faceted bezel with a rubbed-over setting for a stone.

The bezel has been constructed to be integral with the band. The decorative facets around the bezel also continue on the shoulders of the band. A finger ring with a similar style of bezel, although the band is narrower and has a triang…
