A Post-Medieval gold iinscribed
finger-ring, of 'Posy' type..
The ring is formed from a thin hoop, with a convex outer face. The innermost
face is engraved with a saying, motto or message in lower case does read 'God
above increase our love'. There is also a makers mark of 'DF' in blackletter
stamped on the inner band after the motto. The outside of the hoop is
undeccorated. The hoop is now roughly ovoid due to post-depositional damage.
The use of lower case lettering and its thin band suggests a c.18th century
date as KENT-9CDF6B. This coupled with a maker's mark not known or listed
anywhere, it is not therefore possible to assign a date prior to 1718. Thus
the ring does not qualify as treasure as it cannot be comfortable dated to
