Silver finger-ring, complete but broken into three pieces. The hoop is ovoid in form, smoothly profiled with a broad bezel area, and is set with a small oval carnelian (quartz). The gem projects from the setting. It is a light orange in colour, and is somewhat crudely engraved with a bird on a branch.
