Do we know any more about this lovely ring?  I saw it in the field and it's a beauty.  Medieval?

What an absolute great find. I cannot stop looking at this! You must have been so chuffed cos I know I would have been. I don't come on here much and would love to attend one of these digs. I would be very interested to see what period this ring comes from. Well done!!!
