The silver ring, dating to the 1st or 2nd century, is a typical Roman silver finger ring with a missing gemstone. Emma Wilson, principal museums and heritage officer for Caerphilly was "immensely pleased" by the ring saying that Winding House is "a relatively new museum having only been open for three years."
