Simple Medieval Silver Finger Ring
This is a nice and simple medieval silver wedding ring, dating to the 12th - 14th century. The band is triangular in section, usually found with amuletic inscriptions on medieval posy rings (recorded SOM-1716A6). This example is unusual in being unengraved, likely for use as a wedding band. The ring is intact though a little scuffed from its time in the ground, with a nice patina and as excavated.
