    Congrats on that find! That is one of the most beautiful gold rings I have ever seen. I had no idea they made such things hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Just a splendid ring.

    Thank you to everyone for congrats and banner! This is so amazing find, I have been going through history books and tried to find out the story of this ring and I think I got lucky and found out the original owner of this ring! It's not 100% sure yet but quite close. And no, Frodo didn't lost his ring in Finland

    So, there is no stamps inside the ring, not any kind of. There is just initials, NLSQ and SCDF. I found out that in my town, there has been chaplain Abraham Qvist, he was chaplain during 1701-1722. His parents were Nils LarsSon Qvist and Sara ChristiansDotter. Does that ring the bell? I believe that this ring has been Abrahams mourning ring, for the memory of his parents. Only missing clue is that I haven't found his mothers last name from any documents. But I will keep on searching! I also found one source which told that someone robbed Abraham during The Great Northern War. Russians occupied this town and lots of people ran away to Sweden, included Abraham and his family, this happened on 1714. He came back 1721 and died here 1722. I'm still trying to find documents of that robbery, how amazing it would be if there is a comment about this ring!

    First let me say: Huge congrats again on the incredible recovery and the well placed Banner.
    Well done on the research so far on the ring-wow! I wonder if this was a hidden treasured piece or just a lost in flight/or from pillaging of the home?
    Best of luck with the rest of the research.
    Question Do you have to report the finding of the ring/like the PAS in England-is there treasure laws in Finland? Or is it a finders keepers item?

    We need to report every piece over 100 years old to Finnish National Museum. Then they will tell if you need to send it to their collection or can you keep it on yourself. I just got answer about this ring that at least they want me to send it to museum but it's not sure yet if they will keep it or will they send it back to me.

    Do they purchase/reward the finder as in Britain if the item is kept?

    Yes, they give some kind of compensation for the items they keep.
