Medieval Rings & Jewellery
Below are a selection of designs from the many medieval rings
that turn up in the region. Very common amongst them is the fleur
de lys, the symbol of the Angevin dynasty that started here with
the rule of Charles Robert in 1307 and ended with Charles II in 1387.
Some jewellery, such as the "S" shaped earing, are as
early as the 11th century, but most items here date from the 13th
to 15th century.
Going by the amount found, rings must have been very popular.
Many are very low quality and appear cheaply
made from tin or silver plate; others are cast in bronze or silver
