    I purchased this ring for around $5 even though one of the marcasite was missing. I liked the ring so much and thought I can replace the missing stone with one from an old piece of jewelry I have. Was I ever wrong! The photos don't do the ring justice: The stones sparkle like diamonds when the light is right! The other stone would not do the job at all. I guess I have to find a different solution the solve the issue of the missing stone.
    The ring is marked 925 and has two other marks as well but they are too small for me to read.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Thanks a lot, Moonstonelover21. I think one of those days I will have to plan a vacation in your neck of the woods and bring all of my broken pieces with me. And I am not kidding. Just talk to any other Canadian and they will tell you that postage and repair costs and arm and a leg here!

      Thanks a lot, nldionne, DrFluffy, SEAN68, bratjdd, and Moonstonelover21:)

      Does anyone have an idea about the time period of this ring? I was guessing 1920-1940's?

      Nice antique ring, could also be a little older, beginning 20s perhaps. Is the problem to find a marcasite from the same seize or from the same color? Some a a bit more yellow is my experience.

      Thanks Agram.m:) The problem is not the size but the brilliance of the finishing. The ones I have and could use for the repair are not half a shiny as the ones in the ring. I guess I have to keep looking.
