Been very pushed for time this week, so just showing the 2 best pieces, from Mondays heavily curtailed by rain session.
For a while thought this may have been a brooch, until i could rinse it under the tap and see it was in fact a buckle.
Not one i have found before and believe it may be a sub annular around 1700-50 but if anyone knows differently, will add that to my very small knowledge bank on buckles. Diameter 24mm.

This was my detecting friends best find a Dress Hook, both parts within a few feet.

I don’t think that’s a dress hook Dave. Looks like a belt hanger.
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.
