    Jewelry Queen Arnegunde, buried between 580 and 590 CE France(pg 426). This was a practice among royalty to bury them with their finery. A gold ring was found with an inscription, a massive buckle, and a broche. She had ornamental metalwork that was specific to the Merovingian art. Shortly after her death with the encouragement of the church the custom of burying special items with the dead ceased and they were donated to the church.
