Have this 70's ring I'm pretty sure is Finnish and not quite sure of the mark.

Looks like a hawk/eagle head...

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi David-

Hard to see, but it looks like the French Boars head. See "Small guarntee" 1838 to present here:

What do you think?

Looks like Auran Kultaseppä Oy in Turku (1937-95). Can't quite make out your date code, perhaps M7 (1965)? Check your date here:

Date code is U7 which puts it at 1973...and city looks like Turku.

But it is probably a "bald eagle" as best as I can tell. (Raptor beak and all that)


Hope that may help!

Sorry, should have been more clear - your maker is Auran Kultaseppä Oy.

Ok...maker is spot on...but?

Cheryl is right on with the maker...but I always like to know who designed the piece. Any suggestions as to how I'll find out who was designing for this firm around 1973?


Again thanks in advance!
