Ave!

Silver plated copper alloy; 2.8gm

Constructed in two parts; the bezel was hand-stamped with lip about...and the band was then soldered to the bezel.
This ring was certainly used as a signet to seal documents, letters, etc.

Upon arrival, the ring was heavily encrusted, but after an acid wash, this was the result.
Because of the weight, only 2.8gm, I believed it was no later that the 19th Century. Whoops!

Just sharing and enjoy!

Best,

Kevin
