A fragment of a silver-gilt iconographic finger ring of 15th century date. Only the shoulder panel and part of one side survive as well as a tiny portion of the main uppermost panel. The ring itself is keeled and the surviving part of the side has a pair of incuse cinquefoils. The surviving panel shows what appears to be a pair of standing figures, presumably of saints. A fragment of a similarly-decorated panel survives in the centre.

The upper part of a slender and delicate silver-gilt finger ring of 13th or, perhaps more likely, 14th century date. The ring was originally of stirrup-shaped form and has a pair of zoomorphic heads, one on each shoulder of the ring and each of dog-like form with prominent ears. The bezel contains a tiny rounded, flat-backed stone, possibly a purple garnet (pyrope) or perhaps a ruby (the stone is now loose). The inside surface of the ring is flat. This ring can be compared to a small number of similar rings with zoomorphic heads to each side of the bezel, eg YORYM-8384E3; LON-91A86…

A simple silver-gilt finger ring of probable 16th century date. Centrally around the band runs a band of zig-zags between a pair of raised encircling ribs. Roughly-punched lines of dots or dashes run along both outer fields. The ring has sprung open at its join. Internally is a maker's stamp in the form of a pair of letter Rs back to back.

A complete late medieval gold finger ring with a cut and polished amethyst (probably) cabochon set into the bezel. The bezel is formed of two parts. The base is constructed in a so called 'pie-dish' style - popular in the thirteenth century - however this ring displays a crimped edge characteristic of rings from the later 14th century. The upper section of the bezel is shallow and oval in shape, mimicking the shape of the stone.
