This ring was found on the site of the battlefield of Towton and has been associated with Henry Percy, 3rd Earl of Northumberland, a Lancastrian who died in the battle. Towton in (Yorkshire 1461) was the largest and bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil. More than 50,000 soldiers from the Houses of York and Lancaster fought for hours amid a snowstorm; over 28,000 men died. The engagement was a major victory for the Yorkists; Edward IV displaced Henry VI as King of England.
Men (at least the highly fashionable ones) wore many accessories in the 1920s. Notice the different types of hats (here we see fedoras, straw boaters, and Newsboy hats). Canes were popular accessories as well as small rings, tie pins, and collar pins.
I don't always like this kind of #rings but when I do, they are antique, comes in an elaborate Art Nouveau intertwined leaf design in rose, green, and yellow gold. (made in Odessa between 1899 and 1908 $16,500.00)
