Ring found by metal detective in Petham could be worth thousands

A GOLD and diamond ring lost for 300 years could be worth thousands of pounds, an inquest heard. Metal detective Shaun Martin Terriss found the piece of jewellery in a field in Petham on July 15 last year.

Speaking after a treasure trove hearing in Canterbury on Thursday Mr Terriss, who has been metal detecting for four years, said: "I knew it was special straight away. "It was one of those days when it was sunny and it came out of the ground all shiny.

I knew I was looking at a medieval ring but I didn't know what the stone was. "It would be pure speculation but I believe the ring could be worth in the high thousands. It would have belonged to someone of nobility but unfortunately we can't trace who it belonged to."
