An Anglo Saxon ring found by a friend in an English garden. The stone is a Roman intaglio showing Mars; the body probably a 8th Century brooch; and the shaft a 10th C addition - so the experts say.

Circa 10th century, Anglo-Saxon ring. The ring's center is extremely well made, consisting of fine quality gold wire with green and white enamel. The actual band of the ring is not of the same quality, indicating that it was perhaps made by two different individuals. The time that would have gone into making such an equisite ornament is quite phenomenal.

Extremely rare gold saxon ring with a flat circular bezel engraved with a champlevé zoomorphic pattern inlaid with black niello; the hoop is formed by a single wire twisted like a torque, a typical early saxon design, the shoulders terminating in foliate motifs. The original niello is restored and protected by a varnish (who the hell would do that?...).  Northumbria probably late 9th.

circa 9th - 11th Century AD Anglo Saxon/viking Finger Ring  A twisted wire copper-alloy finger ring possibly dating to the late Anglo-Saxon or the post medieval period. The wire is circular in section, uniform in width and coiled three times to form the band, the ends of which are wrapped around the hoop to bind them together. Made from multiple bands with a bezel of knotted appearance, is more likely to belong to the late Anglo-Saxon period with the arrival of Viking culture.
