Hello to all, I am new to the site (Have been Detecting for years) and I am seeking information on an inherited ring. Some basic information would be great, Age,maker,worth if known and any info. I've seen similar online called "cameo style" and tried to research the makers mark but no luck. Its possibly from the 20's or 30's I was told. Top and bottom view are the same. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

I got one also. Has a tigereye cameo with an ancient Greek looking fella set in 10k yellow gold. Never thought it might be a vintage class ring. My thoughts are they were made in Italy in around the 1910s ?

Thanks for the input. This is my great grandfathers. I do know the style and roman soldier tiger eye cameo were popular in the early 20th century.

Note that my Grandfather was born in 1879. My Father 1912. ;-)

Welcome NWPWS! This is what's known as an cameo ring. They were wildly popular
after WWII. They pictured victorious warriors of old, Spartans, Romans, Knights in
armor etc. Some were really beautiful! Congrats. Some of them were carved into
a piece of mineral and they're called intaglio images.

Thanks for the input. Do you know any thing about the makers mark? This would answer a lot of my questions. Thanks again

If you could describe the mark. All I can make out in the image is 10K (10 karat gold composition - 41.7%) followed by maybe five letters with a "U" in the middle of them(?)

Mine is from the early 1900s - most of the finds at this old spot are pre 1938 hurricane finds
The coins from this spot are mostly all pre- 1938 - lot of barbers are pulled from here
have gotten class rings dated from the 20s and wedding bands dated from 20s also
so that is how we date the other finds from here
