This is a rather charming Jacobean period gold finger ring, dating to the early 17th century. The ring bears the initials A.G. that would have been set against white enamel, the back is decorated with a heart that would have been filled with red enamel. It is a nice and original gold finger ring that would have acted as a sweetheart gift or token for a young lady.
