    First for me... never seen one like it.

    At first i thought it was a jewelers "testing" ring... where the stampings were tested.

    But this seems to be telling some form of story... or so it seems.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Yes it is 1917 so many symbols and I feel like they all are telling some sort of story?

    Crowns, the Lion of Finland and the Coat of Arms of Russia The crowns of the Ring represent the period up to 1809 when Finland was part of Sweden. Russia's coat of arms represents the years 1809–1917, when Finland was an autonomous grand principality of the Russian Empire. The dominant symbol, however, is the Lion of Finland, which symbolises Finland's resistance to a foreign occupation from independence in 1917 to the victory in the fight against the Second World War.Independence candle Two independence candles shown in the picture will be lit in the window of each home on Finland's Independence Day on 6 May. December.


    Finnish people Three faces represent three different language groups in Finland, i.e. speakers of Finnish, Swedish and S?mi. The face also depicts great men of Finnish history.


    Summer cottage SSS Finns appreciate their own peace at the summer cottage. The three S-letters of smoke rising from the chimney mean Sibelius, sauna and guts. The form of the letters "S" also refers to the Northern Lights, a magical northern light phenomenon that can only be seen in a few other countries, along with Finland.

    The rest of the story:

    Lakes / Finnish design Land of thousands of lakes. This symbol depicts the beauty of Finnish nature – forests, lakes and the kneeling landscape of the north. The symbol also refers to Finland's diverse design culture, such as Alvar Aalto's smooth and refined architecture and design, which have become part of Everyday Life in Finland. (Finland's 188,000 lakes cover 10% of the country's total area)

    Bear Finland's national animal is a brown bear.


    Phone This symbol combines Finnish design and technology. Finnish industry focused for years on the forest industry (cellulose). Nothing else has had the same impact on Finnish industry as Nokia. (Nokia's rise in the 1990s from a company that manufactured rubber boots and rolls of toilet paper, named after a small Town in Finland, to become one of the biggest technology trailblasts of the late 20th century is an amazing success story.)

    Pic #6 in the original post apparently represents a Nokia cell phone. (Wow, really?) So the ring can't be older than say the 1990's. Maybe early 2000's...

    I'm so let down! I was really hoping it would be old. Still a cool dig, though.
