17th century gold ring found in Staffordshire

A rare 17th century gold ring found with a metal detector is set to be snapped by Stoke-on-Trent’s biggest museum.

The mourning ring was unearthed underneath some brambles in the Newcastle area in June 2010.

It has been declared treasure and is currently being stored at The British Museum, in London.

But it is understood that The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, in Hanley, is bidding to bring the antique back to North Staffordshire.
