Ring owned by Jane Austen goes on display
A ring, once owned by Jane Austen is going on display for the first time at her former home at Chawton in Hampshire.
The ring was bought by American singer Kelly Clarkson at auction, but an export ban meant it couldn't leave the country.
An anonymous donor then gave 100 thousand pounds to buy the ring back. ITV Meridian spoke to Curator Mary Guyatt.
