Selection of Cheapside Hoard rings. Two flower shaped rings one originally set with seven cabochon emeralds; the other is enamelled and set with garnets. The form of these two rings was inspired by Spanish fashions. Two gold finger rings set with a sapphire. Blue traditionally has a spiritual significance and symbolises purity; the sapphire is one of the stones used in ecclesiastical rings. And in the centre, gold finger ring set with a large table-cut diamond in enamelled gold setting, the white champlevé enamel is decorated with black enamel flowers and leaves on the outer surface of the hoop and underside of the bezel.
