On the British Isle of Man, a former police officer discovered a 1000-year-old jewelry collection on a farm field. As it turned out, among the finds – a gold bracelet and a huge brooch made of silver, dating back to 950 AD. e. Some of the jewelry found is very similar to those that are now at the peak of popularity among fashion influencers.
Ex-police officer Kaf Giles came across an ancient find back in December 2020, but it was decided to show it to the public only in February. Coroner’s hearings are now underway to legally secure the jewelry as a “treasure”.
It is not yet known how much the collection will be priced at, but similar items were previously priced at £ 1,500 per unit. According to archaeologists, a gold shoulder bracelet is an especially rare find, because in the vast majority of cases at that time they were made of silver.
“I am very glad that these things are not only important as historical evidence, but also very beautiful,” Kaf Giles commented on her find.

The precious find suggests that its owner was a wealthy man, but he had reasons to worry about his life, so he buried the jewelry in the ground.
