Hittite Seal Ring, 22k Gold and uncut Emeralds
The wonder of this spectacular necklace isn't that the beads survived from Britain's age of Roman conquest -- beads often last -- but that their arrangement into this particular form probably dates from relatively soon afterward. I don't know about you, but that much history gives me the shivers (in a good way).
According to an expert, this is exactly the sort of strand created by Britons of the Anglo-Saxon period, as found in some burials circa 600 to 1000...

This unusually large and ornate frog effigy, if not reconditioned as a pendant, would be a museum-piece. It was found circa 1950, with normal and natural wear, then cleaned and polished, fitted with a bale and probably gold-dipped to restore its original appearance.
Looking at the result, I find it hard to regret the changes, even though a lot of value was lost. Now we're free to enjoy it as a jewel, not just admire it in a public display case...
