    Cool ring - possibly Masonic

    The ouroboros is displayed on numerous Masonic seals, frontispieces and other imagery, especially during the 18th century.

    It is "Ouroboros" In alchemy it is the sign for completion.
    In the Gnostic religion it is the great world serpent, symbolising the the enclosure of the whole world.Also known as Nahash and Nehushtan.

    As stated, symbol of infinity or immortality. Could be old. Hard to tell from your pic. Even the 'bigger' one...

    They still make them as pendants. Better pics will bring better answers.

Of most importance is to use the flower icon setting and remain still, pausing halfway, while pushing the shutter button, to allow an autofocus lens to adjust.
