Discussion: This ring gas been examined by British Museum curators (Early Medieval, Medieval and Post-Medieval specialists) who have been unable to confirm a date or function for this ring. Given that both function and date are uncertain we are unable to confirm that it is over 300 years old. The…

The bezel and shoulders of a worn silver engraved medieval finger ring. The bezel has two facets with the remnants of crudely engraved designs, one of which looks like a face. A similar ring from the Isle of Wight 2008T497 [IOW-8CF9E7] has less crude figures of saints on its bezel so it is assumed that the Dinton ring designs were meant to be figures. The shoulders have pairs of leafy stemmed flowers. Perhaps these are lilies which appear in Christian iconography associated with the Virgin Mary. 2010T13 [KENT-DDF152]; 2007T285 [BH-E08757]; 2004T14 [KENT-EBFB32] have similar decoration…
