Style of Ring

Postby shub33 » Wed Oct 20, 2021 3:47 pm

This ring stumps me. There are no marks but tests positive as sterling silver. I am not sure of the style nor the age. Anyone want to jump in? Thank you in advance for looking.

Hi,
It is Jewish wedding ring with centuries long history.

Thank you once again, @AG2012! Could you guess the age of the ring? There are absolutely no Judaic symbols or even maker's mark.

My assumption is based on the form; no Hebrew letters are needed.
The age is impossible to tell.
If feasible, have electronic testing done; several metals in the alloy beside silver indicates older production because of imperfect metallurgical techniques. Modern silversmiths buy 999 fine and add pure copper.
