A king would have worn this style of ring during the Saxon and Norman periods. It would have been made from solid gold or other precious metals. Metal workers were highly skilled and made many intricate jewellery items including rings and brooches as well as ornate swords and helmets.
This Kings Ring is made from lead-free pewter and is supplied in a clear plastic blister. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information on the reverse.
