Gold Post Medieval finger ring, uncertain date. A plain gold band, with a slightly raised central ridge on the outside. The ring has been squashed out of shape but originally but have been round. The band is thin, and flat on the inside. Judy Rudoe (British Museum) has seen an image of this ring and is happy that it is undiagnostic, so cannot be assigned a pre-1700 date. As such it does not constitute Treasure.

Cast copper alloy Post Medieval finger ring, with inscription on inside. The finger ring is rounded with a D-sectioned hoop. It has decoration on the outside, which was probably cast in.

Copper alloy ring, probably a finger ring, Roman in date. It is formed by a thick, circular cross-sectioned copper aloly wire being curled round into two rows with slightly rounded terminals. Both terminals also have cross-hatched decoration, similar to the more delicate copper and silver Roman snake finger rings. Although this seems very large for a finge ring, there are some similar examples on the PAS database. A similar ring formed from a single turn can be seen in Lindsay Allason-Jones and Roger Miket's 'Catalogue of small finds from South Shields Roman fort,' 1984: pp 125-…

Cast copper alloy finger ring, Post Medieval in date. It is plain with no decoration on either the bezel or the hoop. The hoop is D shaped in cross-section. It has slightly angular shoulders leading up to a flat bezel, a rounded rectangle in plan. This may have had decoration on but there is nothing visible now. The surface may have been treated, perhaps coated with a 'white metal' such as pewter or silver but corrosion has made it unclear.

Copper alloy Post Medieval finger ring, 18th century in date. It has ac circular hoop which is flat all the way around. The outer face is decorated with vertical lines all around the diameter. On the inner face there are three lions stamped, this is presumably the makers mark. The Norfolk FLO had a case where a copper alloy finger ring had been stamped with a lion and the word GOLD, presumably to try to fool someone into thinking it was a gold ring. The marks on this finger ring may be something similar.
