Working treasure report: A complete gold Medieval finger-ring, with an oval bezel set with a blue stone, possibly sapphire. The hoop of the ring is circular in cross section: the shoulders are broader and taper into a thin band. Either side of the bezel is a narrow transverse ridge. The ring is in good condition, the only defect being that the hoop is slightly bent out of shape. A very similar ring has been found in Kington St Michael, Wiltshire and can be found in the Treasure Annual Report 2003, pg. 102, no. 169. The ring is typical of the late 12th or 13th century

A Medieval gold finger ring of probable 13th century date. The ring is stirrup-shaped set with a green stone (possibly glass or emerald). There are decorative bosses along the shoulders running along a raised ridge. The bosses have punched decoration giving them the appearance of clusters of granulation on one shoulder and stripes on the other: possibly intended to represent a vine with grapes, leaves and tendrils; or another floral design. The ring has been slightly distorted, mostly around the base of the loop. Similar examples can be seen on the database: eg ESS-831C60, ESS-98F924 …

Description: A gold finger ring of Medieval date. It has a d-shaped hoop which is complete. It is decorated on the outside face with lozenges infilled with groups of pellets. It widens slightly to form a stirrup-shaped like bezel with a circular hole for a setting, which is missing. It is bent out of shape due to post-depositional damage. Discussion: For comparison see a silver finger-ring from Ewell, Surrey (2005 T93) dated to the 13th Century.

A cast copper-alloy finger ring of probable Medieval date. It is missing its setting, but is otherwise complete. The hoop is oval shaped in section and expands to a sub-triangular bezel. There are three circular recesses within the oval bezel, presumably to hold either paste or a setting, the setting is missing. This form of 'Stirrup-Shaped' finger ring is noted by Egan and Pritchard as being popular in England from the mid-12th century for several hundred years, although perhaps only fashionable until the mid-13th century (Egan and Pritchard, 1991: pp. 326-327).

A silver Medieval "fede" type finger ring which is inscribed on the outside of the hoop. The inscription is difficult to read because of damage, but appears to read: "C' IL (M)RONE(WH)•IALEALA" but the meaning of this is unclear. The bezel is in the form of clasped hands but has been twisted and bent inwards and the hoop is broken. The rest of the hoop is rectangular in section and fairly crude. Lovers' 'Fede' type rings are well known and a number of complete and fragmentary examples have been recorded under the Treasure Act (eg 2007 T49; 2007 T107; 2007 T342; and 2010 T158).Com…
