A 13th or 14th century ring was discovered near Ripon, England in 2010 by metal detectorist Lindsey Holland. The silver and carnelian ring is expected to be declared treasure, making it available to be acquired by a museum. (photo)
The medieval ring is intricately-carved "with a picture of two cornucopaie or 'horns of plenty' flanking a date palm. The silver around the gem is inscribed with three words translated as 'live,' 'be well' or 'farewell' and 'fear.'"
