Further examples of personal ornaments from the cemetery at Faversham. 
From the collection of Mr. William Gibbs.
Figs 1 to 6. Gold pendamits, analogous to, but differing in pattern from, those in the Fausaett collection. engraved in the ‘Inventorium Sepulehrale,’ p1. iv. It is somewhat difficult to say whether the red substance in these jewels is glass or garnet, in several which on former occasions we were enabled to test, they were decidedly garnets cut into thin plates. Mr. Gibbs informs me he considers those in figs. 1 to 3, and 4 and 6, are glass. The blue stones are either turquoise or lapis-lnzuli. Fig. 5 is set with what appears to be fine, streaked marble. Fig. 7. Bead in amethystine quartz. Figs. 8 and 9. Beads in glass and coloured clay.
