5 Gold Rings

Hadham silver gilt ring

5 gold rings! Well, okay, it is the same ring from 5 different angles and it is made of silver-gilt not pure gold but it is an important 15th Century treasure nonetheless! It was found by a metal detectorist in Little Hadham in 2014 and purchased by the museum for £380 the following year. The centre of the ring has alternating text, which has been incised, with foliate engravings. The inscription reads: en cuer bon (en coeur bon) – which translates as: with a good heart, or in good heart.

We can only imagine the medieval story this ring holds but its personal message stays true today.
