Ring

Ring

1300s

Description

Tradition holds that this ring was found in a garden in Winchester, England. In the 14th century, rings were worn in large numbers-four or five on one hand. The symbols of the sun and moon and the clasped hands found on this ring suggest a sentimental relationship between a man and a woman.
