Story

<p>Its dazzlingly large garnet is half the size of the ring itself. The band and stone are still in excellent condition. The ring may be 800 years old and would have been worn by a wealthy man or woman in the 13th century. This would be a delightful gift for a proud Norwichian, a local history enthusiast or that certain someone in your life who likes a bit of bling!</p><p><strong>The minimum donation to become a Silver Adopter of this object is £25.</strong> After clicking 'Donate', please enter this amount before continuing.
