    Hi,

    I cannot really seen the hallmark, much less identify it. Yet prima facie, you do have a 99.5 chinese gold ring. Congrats!!

    Asians are yellow-gold crazy and the do not accept low purities. Today in Hongkong straight 24k is quite normal, 18k shoddy and anything below not worth considering:

    https://www.chowsangsang.com/en/prod...24kGold?page=0

    Thai standard is 23k. Nobody in Asia caares if this scratches easy since you pay by weight and the surcharge is very moderate. Things you do not like anymore you drop at the goldstore, pay someting on top and get new stuff.

    As a sarcastic sidenote: Try to exchange several ounces of gold without id and questions asked in a so called western, free country.

    Back to topic: Try to get a better shot of the hallmark. Kanji might not necessary mean Mainland China, Taiwan, HK or MAC. Oversea chinise do have a strong hand in SE in the gold trade. Could. e.g. be Malaysia.

    IF it is near 24kt [ pure gold ] you should be able to squeeze it & bend it with your fingers.

    This is definitely a high purity Asian gold ring. Asian countries use the purity marks you mention- 995, it is between 23k and 24k (99.5% pure gold). Asians like the value of gold and tend not to dilute it with copper to lower karat ratings as in the western world. For example, you'll never see 10k gold sold in asia and 14k is very rare, 18k and 24k are the standards. This was probably lost by a Chinese exchange student or professor in Ann Arbor, huge chinese exchange student population there.. and many are VERY wealthy, as in almost every US college town, schools love it because they pay out of state tuition plus additional feels, so it's a cash cow, of course the tax paying wolverines children are the ones that get bounced from the application process to make room for these higher paying Chinese kids. Such is today's higher-ed money making machine. Those are definitely Chinese characters crudely scratched into the inside of the ring but the photos were not clear enough for my family members to read them. If you can obtain better quality photos, I can provide you a direct translation. Great find!!!

    @A2coins. Wow thatís a nice ring. Sorry I didnít see the post earlier. From the photos you provided the characters (which are not etched in very well) appears to say 金華 jin hua however the 華 hua character looks to be etched in strange with an extra stroke mark and some strokes are too long or too short. My guess the meaning is gold and China (meaning the ring is made in China and the gold is from China) it could also mean a city in Zhenjiang province but I donít think itís that meaning. Happy hunting!
