15th century Tudor ring sells for five figure sum

A 15th century Tudor ring discovered by a metal detectorist in a field near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, has sold for a sum in the five figure range.


The ring was sold through a London jewellers

The piece is made from gold and displays a ruby and an emerald. Its sale was conveyed through a London jewellers.

Lee Rositer, the man who found the piece, said: "One of my friends said it was far too yellow to be real gold and looked like costume jewellery I should just throw away.

"But the ring was relatively heavy and I thought I better ask our dig organiser, Stuart Littlewood. Luckily he confirmed that this was definitely an antique ring, most likely Tudor Gold."
