If I had to choose one though, I’m going to go with an emotional vote and as I was present for both finds I’m voting for the pyramid as it generated more exceitment, can’t beat a chunky bit of gold!

Definitely the pyramid for me. So characteristic of the period and a 'proper' piece of history. Slim margin though and the ring is lovely too.
Chip: I have a shiny new penny here in my hot little hand... its a deal (and I'll settle for just one). Does that include p&p?

The ring though is something else when you stop and consider the workmanship.
Wonder what that guys workshop looked like?
All done with the naked eye, beating and shaping the gold evenly and wafer thin then shaping and bonding it into position- how were those tiny beads of gold in the corners made - you couldn't pick those up with your fingers - well sure I couldn't
So many questions ...... It is the ring for me
