Nine decorative rings held together on a loop of gold wire which appears to have been broken off a longer length of wire in antiquity, possibly from a bracelet.

Five of the rings are double rings made of gold strips and two are triple rings with the lightly 'C' sectioned strips curved round. The find represents the largest collection of composite rings found together in Britain to date.

Provenance

Discovered near Gresham in North East Norfolk and declared Treasure in 2004.
