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."
