I had myself a grand morning at the flea markets today! Besides some great silver finds (large Georg Jensen ring) was this ring. I was looking through varied small plastic bags of jewelry and came to a bag of rings. Dumped them all out and proceeded to put each one back in the bag - junk rings. I stopped when I picked up this one. That 750 mark is the European equivalent of 18K. Acid tests, on the touchstone and on the metal itself, confirmed it. I expect all those stones are diamonds. More than 100 of them. Am going to the jeweler tomorrow to have them checked and tested. I PAID 50 CENTS.
UPDATE: the plot thickens....so far no confirmation on the stones being diamonds, but perhaps White Sapphires. I am going to go to my own jeweler today to see what he says about it. Is it real or is it Memorex? (Oldies here will know what I mean!)
UPDATE 01/08/2019-------> the stones test as white Sapphires, according to two jewelers. All set by hand. I sold the ring locally on 01/07/2019 for 300 Euro/$332.00.
