Finger rings

These three metal finger rings were found near the ruins of Kilspindie Castle in Aberlady in East Lothian. They date from between the 16th and 19th century.

The two rings on the left are plain hoops. The third, on the right, has traces of a paste gem set into the bezel.

Kilspindie or Kilspindley Castle was built in 1585, between the village of Aberlady and the shore.
