Part of a medieval silver-gilt 'fede' ring dating to the 15th century. The bezel consists of two clasped hands with a crown above. There is space between the central and right ornaments of the crown but not between the central and left ornaments. The clasped hands are denoted by incised lines and there is not much detail. There are collars on each side just beyond the wrist. The breaks are just beyond the collars on both sides however these are quite uneven so it seems unlikely that they were intentionally cut. Fede rings come from the Italian for faith (mani in fede) and came t…

Part of a medieval silver-gilt 'fede' ring dating to the 15th century. The bezel consists of two clasped hands with a crown above. The crown has two circular perforations which separate the separate elements. There are collars on each side just beyond the wrist. The breaks are just beyond the collars on both sides however these are rough and uneven so it seems unlikely that they were intentionally cut. Fede rings come from the Italian for faith (mani in fede) and came to symbolise love and faith. They are popular from the 15th century although the motif of the clasped hands is k…

An incomplete Medieval (c.1300-1400) gold round-hooped finger-ring with an apparently green gemstone setting, the hoop now bent out of shape. Measures 20.22x15.10mm (internal 16.72x13.43mm) and weighs 0.43g. The hoop is of gold wire (c.0.8mm diameter) and attaches with a soldered lap joint to either side of the bezel, which is bi-conical with a very small opening (c.0.5mm) to show the gemstone setting. The ring is similar to examples in Egan and Pritchard (1991, 326; ref. 1610 for example) which is broadly dated to the 14th century.

A complete copper alloy finger ring, missing the setting and dating to the 12th or 13th century. The ring has a circular hoop and the sides of the hoop gradually slope upwards towards an oval bezel. There is no stone present but it seems likely that there would have been a small stone or glass fitted in the oval space. Rings of this type are called "stirrup-shaped" rings and a similar one was found in London although it was made of pewter (Egan and Pritchard number 1608), and was dated to the period AD 1230 to 1260. There is a another example, excavated in the 1970s and now in the W…
