Description: Gold finger-ring with a French inscription engraved around the exterior of the hoop in Gothic or 'black letter' script, reading + tout + dys + en + lealte. The last word and the cross between 'dys' and 'en' are inlaid with white enamel, suggesting that the whole inscription was originally inlaid with white enamel, but that the rest of the enamel has since worn away. The inscription translates to "all said in loyalty", but as inscriptions on finger-rings overwhelmingly tend to be amatory, the meaning of the phrase is more likely to be "I will be faithful to everything I…

A broken 13th or 14th century silver finger ring, crudely inscribed on the outside in seriffed capitals that read 'AVE MARIA NN' ('Hail Mary').

Finger rings carrying a similar style of inscription and already reported under the Treasure Act include 2006 T442 found in Cambridgeshire, 2010 T223 and 2011 T666 both found on the Isle of Wight. In addition two silver stirrup style medieval finger rings, 2012 T5 found in Wiltshire and 2011 T869 found in Dorset, carry s…

A complete gold finger ring with gemstone of Medieval date. The hoop is narrow, but expands gradually on each side towards the bezel. The bezel is sub-rectangular in shape and each side of the upper face slopes inwards to meet a smaller sub-rectangular fitting that protrudes outwards from the centre, holding a rounded dark red gemstone. Each corner of the fitting is crimped to further secure the gem. It is likely to be of 12th to 14th century date.
