This is a unique and very unusual Bronze Age / Celtic finger ring, dating to c. 1100 - 800 B.C. The ring is large and cast in the cire perdue process, typical or early metalworking. It is clearly related to the knobbed variety of ring money, from Gaul, Germany and the Black Sea region catalogued by Victoor, R. Roulles Celtes et Objets Assimilés. (Rosendaël-lez-Dunkerque, 1989). Rather than being a uniform "ring-money" with knobs at even points, this piece is more organic and magical.
