Dot Boughton, the district discovery liaison, confirmed that the ring was being tested at the British Museum and that the case had been handed over to the coroner and could therefore be formally classified as a treasure.
It is believed that the ring began in the 14th century with baby Christ engraved on one side and female saints engraved on the other.
MS Botton\'s coverage of the ring compared the stone to the stone used on the tomb of former Archbishop William White Lacey of Canterbury, who died in 1374.
Mr Thompson is now waiting for the coroner to set the date of the investigation to confirm that the ring is a treasure.
If so, it will be valued by experts and offered to the museum for purchase.
Mr Thompson will be rewarded as a discoverer.
