This is a charming medieval gold finger ring, dating to the 14th century. The ring is set with the original emerald green gemstone. Interestingly this ring has decorated shoulders, it appears to be a lovers knot between two pinecones (or a representation of a heart). The bezel is slender and shaped like a stirrup, the band very dainty. A comparable stirrup ring (without the decoration) has been recorded from Kent KENT-A919BC. Being a ground found example, this ring has been cleaned and straightened, it has an old repair to the band (likely once resized). A nice and delicate medieval ring, suitable for wear with care.
