Gold rings.
Right - Gold finger ring consisting of a fine chain, two small bands and a twisted gold wire, found in a layer dating to the last years of the 17th century. It may have been lost during the French attack on September 21, 1696.

Left - Gold finger ring with cross-hatched decoration, found only two metres from the other ring and probably lost at the same time. The two rings are of different sizes.
