Two Bronze Age gold rings which were found by a metal detectorist on farm land in Wrexham have been declared treasure by a coroner.
The lock-rings – worn either as earrings or in the hair by a person of wealth and status about 3,000 years ago – were discovered in Rossett.
The ornaments will now go on display in Wrexham County Borough Museum.
A late Bronze Age hoard of gold and copper thought to be around 3000 years old was unearthed on Anglesey .
The discovery is considered so important that it has been given the rare definition of ‘treasure’ by the coroner’s office.
They were found by a metal detecorist in Cwm Cadnant, and include a gold band – known as a hair ring – and an ear ring, which are believed to be examples of Bronze Age jewellery.
Detectorist Philip Cooper also found ingots, which would have been a form of early currency.
