Thank you for the add guys
Hope you can shed some light to this Bronze ring, it as intricate detail that goes all the way around
with no detail to the inner ring.
The outer appears to have plums of feathers or scallop shells and sun bursts. I am no expert but it feels like medieval.
sorry for the poor quality.
Thanks in advance.

Also has the medieval look to me too :thumbsup:

Didnt our Alexander Holzhammer find one similar the other week?

Hopefully someone with more ID skills than myself comes along with some proper advice

Welcome aboard the good ship Hub :thumbsup:

The thickness alone points to a bit of age but this type of ring has been around since the year dot - what might help narrow down the likely age is the decorative style. Any chance of some clear close-up images of the decoration?

Welcome :D

Agree with Figgis, see if you can get some close up photos and we’ll be able to be a lot more helpful. It looks like there may be writing on it too? It certainly has some age to it but that could be earlier or later than medieval cause copper alloys can be a slippery little blighter and appear to be older when 300 years old than one that’s 1700 years old! The decoration will seal the ID :thumbsup:
