You're right also that it maybe the top part of a ring or something decorative to be worn, but it would be a very heavy ring.

I don't think it's a commercial seal, at least not a British one. I have a fair collection of lead cloth bale seals found in the Thames foreshore from Tudor onwards and they are vary recognisable.
