Came across this today. Grandmas showed me a, "secret drawer," in the box of goodies. And then I saw this. Looks like rose gold, my grandma told me the story.
This ring is easily over 100 years old, and was never outside my family. Many years ago, my great-uncle tried to have new stones put in. As the story goes...the jeweler told him that he could not add new stones. The ring was too brittle.
I do not know what kind of stones, and both my grandma and I would love comment. Looks like bright cut along the side? Let me try to ID based on the hallmarks:
16 Karat Rose Gold
Made in 1870 by Joseph Price
That would be my best guess. Enjoy!
