    Question unidentifiable symbols on victorian gold ring

    I found this ring at an antique store. The design and hallmark is still somewhat of a mystery. I've found searching google that the hallmark of the 3 x's means 3/4 gold or 18k but in fact the gold tester machine says its only 10k. Does anyone know what it means?
    Also the design, is it a design made by the manufacturer or by someone post the rings creation? What are the symbols called? Any info you have would be greatly appreciated!

    I also found the thread about using X's to indicate gold purity. Your 10K ring with 3 X's could simply mean that the jeweler lied.

    He then explained to me that it was commonly believed that on a certain night of the year…
    a blue flame is seen over any place where treasure has been concealed.

    Not sure about the Hallmark,But the side looks like the French flur de lise (spelling)

    It does look close to fleur de lis marking can you take a pic of the other designs on the ring or are they all the same?

    The hallmark has two, maybe three characters. What looks like a W to the side(top) is the city where it was made in England. The three prong object tells the year, I think. All this stuff is on google. Can't really see it that well or I would look it up for you.
