An antique gold ring that has been collecting dust in a collector’s closet for almost 30 years is worth £30,000 (over 2 million rubles). about that Gives information BBC News.
The ring came to a 66-year-old collector in 1994, who wished to remain anonymous. After nearly three decades, the man decided to take it to the British Museum for evaluation. “I am in my 60s and I don’t know how long I will live. “I thought the ring needed to find a good home so my children wouldn’t have to decide what to do with it,” he says.
It is assumed that the decoration was worn by the leader of the Coryltaws, a Celtic tribe that owned part of the English region of the West Midlands and the county of Yorkshire. According to experts, the decoration was made about 100 years before our era. The unusual pattern on the ring is associated with the Iceni, another Celtic tribe living in the southeastern part of the island.
The jewelery will be put up for sale on November 15 by Noon’s Auction House. “There is no other ring of this style. It’s an incredibly important thing,” says an employee at the auction house.
