Rings of glass - mostly finger-rings - were in fashion throughout much of Europe between the 10th and 14th centuries. They have been found across a large area stretching from Russia to England, from the Alps to Sweden. Recently, thanks to a lucky find in the stores of the University Museum of Bergen, this town could now be added to the distribution map as the site of the northernmost discovery, and the first in Norway. As the ring fragment from Bergen also represents a rare type of glass ring, it certainly deserves a spotlight.
