It would be awesome if the item could be linked with a specific person, and I'd be very interested in any updates regarding original ownership.
    They will probably make a token effort at the family link. After all if the Museum shows an interest, an historical family will push up the market price they have to pay.
    Sadly my contact on coat of arms has no firm linkage yet.
    You are close, the star or mullet is the 3rd Son of....The Lion's are pointing towards a French connection. Thats all we have right now, other than its small size points towards a young rich boy. Plus its fine workmanship shows they choose a top goldsmith, so I hope they ID the Hallmark/makers mark as that will attract interest & a tighter date-line.

    UPDATE;

    The British Museum Report is now in for the Gold Ring.

    It agrees with my date range, but sadly they can't ID the makers mark or the family arms. I will continue my independent research by reaching out to contacts.

It was a slow start & we soon had to move as the weeds were too high. I moved us to an area I liked, on our 1st day scouting, & on that first run Cru'dad bangs out a hammered. Great we are back in the game. (Keeping a streak alive)
    By lunchtime our good finds were a little light & we thought it was going to be a lesser day.....Until I decided to wander a little past the last flag turn-a-round point whilst waiting for Cru'dad to catch me up. (Normally I just finish his runs for him) As I was trying to work out if this end was worth doing I didn't do a straight line (Because we might be going back over it) & I just fumbled onto the GOLD RING.
    (5 hour hunt)

    2 Scrappies
    17th C Token
    18th C Navy Button
    Medieval Horse Pendant
    Spanish 8 Maravedis (Counter-marked 1630 on rev)
    Hammered of Ed I Bury St Edmund's mint (Only my 3rd of this mint)
    What I believe to be a late 16th - early 17th C 22ct Gold Seal Ring with some kind of early hallmark/makers mark. This must be very high status, as using the 3 Lions would require Royal Approval. It will be handed in as treasure very soon.

    UPDATED
    It's now been handed over to the FLO. They will email the British Museum to either treat as a Treasure case or 'if' less than 300 years old, it will go down the PAS route.
    That looks like an excellent day! Amazing finds hopefully more info on the ring comes to light after they research it! How often do you find metal arrowheads in your neck of the woods? I would love to find one! In my area I think the only hope I have is kettle points, trade points or pre-contract points. They are all extremely rare to find.

    I've only had one 'possible' metal arrowhead, & a nice flint one.

    3 Lions Passant was high status to say the least. It was reserved for the Royal successors of King Richard I...until 1340. If the ring were made later...that would be interesting.

    Although I don't think this has a direct Royal connection, it would have an indirect one, as only those that had Royal approval could use symbols like that.
