The ring is about 0.5 cm thick and 3.8 cm in diameter. The seal is rectangular, 2.4 cm wide by 3.2 cm high. The seal is badly damaged by fire, but bears at the top, on a countersunk surface, an effigy of Garuḍa with outstretched wings (similar to that on the copper coins of Candragupta II). There is a much damaged legend of two lines below the image.

The ring is about 0.6 cm thick and 6.5 cm in diameter. It bears a rectangular seal, about 3.5 wide by 2.2 cm high. The seal has traces of an illegible legend on a countersunk surface. The ring and seal were extant when Fleet studied the plates in 1888, but one end of the ring had been detached from the seal (where the two ends had been welded into a socket) to allow separation of the plates.
