    Found two rings, junk or not ?

    I found two rings, not sure if there anything or just junk. The first one I think is copper and looks like it might be older, had a bit of a patina on it. No clue as to what the symbols are, I can make out a dragon on each side of the ring and it does have a stamp on the inside band, but I can't make it out. Second ring looks like it's gold, but theres a couple spots on it that look darker or varnished, not sure weather its plated or not, the band is stamped BDA10K. I found the rings in different spots, but they both are VERY small, can't even get them on my smallest digit.
    Any thoughts, junk, gold ?

    Thanks
    John

    "BDA" is a mark of Budlong, Docherty, & Armstrong of Providence, RI. One of their ads from 1950 indicated that they had been in business for over 100 years at that time. The company was sold to Frederick L. Pratt in 1971, but continued doing business under the same name until at least 1977.

    that reminds me of the stone in a ring I found. The jeweler said it was blue zircon and although a birthstone, it is probably valued at about $250 a carat due to the color being rare now.

    Wow that a nice looking ring and stone. I'm not too sure weather what's in mine is stone or glass, it has a few chips in it and a bunch of scratches, hard to tell if there internal or on the exterior only. Here's a couple close ups.

    I found the exact same ring, (the first post), and was told that it was from the the 1930-40's, possibly a radio premium. Hazy on the details, possibly "Terry and the Pirates". Could be wrong, probably am, and I need to look for it, but I recall that it is a pretty well made "junk" ring. Hopefully someone will recognize it here. Nice finds!
