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!!!

Oh wow man, that’s an absolute beauty. Has the stone came out or is it needing a good cut and pollish

13th 14th century, well that is intresting does it have markings and letters around the band?? If so check out ttu_annual report-15-16. Scroll down to see a very similar ring.
