Description

Anglo-Saxon gold herringbone ring. A smoothly conforming flat yellow gold band composed of three twisted gold wires, approximately 2.7mm in width. Tested yellow gold, approximately 1.4g in weight, circa 7th-10th century AD.

The twisted wires of this ring, each wound in the opposite direction, create a chevron or herringbone effect which was particularly favoured by the craftsmen of the time. This optical allusion would have had a particular significance which has been lost over time.

Ring size guide: P 1/2
