Gold ring 15th cent. 2004/T385b This ring measures 22mm in diameter and 6mm in height. It carries one inscription on its external face, which reads: mon cuer entier ('my whole heart') The repetition of the legend, combined with their respective sizes, may suggest that the two rings were originally a pair designed for a man and a woman. http://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/78367
