Medieval to post-medieval gold finger ring. The oval-sectioned band expands smoothly from the rear to shoulders which flair before narrowing sharply to join the bezel.

For similar examples see Oman (1974, pl.26, a, b and pl.27, b for a broadly similar example with enamel). Date: 16th century. Dimens…
