CHINESE or JAPANESE? Help me identify these symbols, please!!

Postby pinagus » Mon Feb 15, 2021 1:40 am

I bought this dragon ring online (poshmark), and was told that it was antique and that the symbols meant sterling silver in asian, I didn't bother to ask from what country it was from (facepalm). I know, I know, but the price was too good to pass, and it's beautiful, don't you think? I was memorized by it, just wish I knew what the hallmark meant? I have done tons of research on the web, but nothing!

Hi Gus,

If I am not mistaken, in simplified Chinese it means pure silver.

Here's my dragon ring, I named him Falcor, from the movie Neverending story!

Take good care all!
