I really get a kick out of some of these stallholders at the market. I was looking over the jewelry on the tables of an older woman, and she was busy telling me about this antique ring, that antique ring and the other antique ring. There was a ring display that held about 15 different rings which she said were all costume. She went on to tell me how she used to work in a jewelry store and how she knew what was what. I guess that's the reason she charged me $5.50 for this big silver ring (with 2 silver marks and a maker's mark).
It's not broken at the shank, but made that way to allow a bit of wiggle room for the finger. A perfect fit just as it is now. Don't know what that other mark is yet, next to the .835 stamp.
Thanks for looking, CW friends!
