This silver and enamel ring was a souvenir from the China, Burma, India (CBI) theater of operations during WW2.
The ring has a central square with a deep engraved "John" that has been filled in with blue enamel. There is also red and green enamel. One side is engraved "India", the other "1944".
This style, engraving, and colored enamels are all typical of the CBI theater souvenirs. Bracelets and rings are probably the most common souvenir items from the CBI theater.
Thanks for looking.
