A metal detectorist couple has united a 450-year-old silver love ring with its second half 3 years after finding the first. 
The partial artifact was discovered in Lancashire and inscribed on it is the word "Yours". Love rings during the TudorEra, were inscribed with a variety of different messages, therefore the options of what the complete meaning may be, was endless.
The metal detecting pair, Sheila and Iain, who has been treasure hunting for 12 years, was searching again on the same field 3 years later when they uncovered the second half of the ring. When the pieces were placed together, it read "I am yours". Sheila said that the ring is tiny and beautifully decorated with elegant letters. It forms a small part of the history of the area. As the field on which the ring was discovered is plowed yearly, it is possible that the plow may have broken it in half. Whoever the misfortunate lover is who lost their ring will remain a mystery, buried in time.



1000-year-old unique medieval treasure.


Mr. Peter Fergus from Devon discovered this unique artifact, which was officially declared a treasure.

Dating between the sixth and 11th centuries, nothing alike has been found before.
Decribed as a very small lid of a gilded silver box with dimentions of 30mm (1.2") long, 15mm (0.6") wide, 8mm (0.3") high and weighs 11.29g (0.4oz).
Experts believe boxes like these were used to protect physical remains of religious figures or saints, such as bones, pieces of clothing, or other objects like a piece of a holy cross.

The item was unearthed around nine inches (23cm) in the ground on farmland at nearby Wembury.
