Hi Cath, what a find. I missed this earlier as I was down the pub with the boys and thought I would look on here before bed. Lovely lovely find and it fits makes it even better. It looks 22 carat from here, but I’ve had a gin or two😋,and you can keep it as it’s not treasure by the sounds of it. Just weigh it,offer the farmer his half of the scrap value and wear it to bring more
Good luck.
So please for you.

I found one very similar to this about 3 years ago and had it id'd at an auction house, hallmarks were akin to what you have, eventually told it had George 111 bust on it, 22 carat gold, circa 1800. Now obviously yours won't be exactly the same but it might just give you a ballpark date. :)
