Ref  TM2   Medieval Turquoise Rng

A 14th century British high carat gold ring. Portraits suggest that during the medieval period rings were often worn on every finger and on every joint. On this medieval ring the gold hoop supports a tart mold bezel set with its original Persian turquoise. Turquoise was highly prized for its talismanic properties and medieval authors ascribed magical or spiritual properties to such stones set in rings. Turquoise was believed  to give contentment to the wearer and protect against illness and poisoning. The ring is size P [US 7 and 1/2] and can be made smaller but not larger. It has survived in fine and wearable condition. For similar examples see Oman's British Rings 800 -1914 and the V & A and Ashmolean Museum collections.
