Hello,

just sold by WAF e-stand......is it a known period pattern ? May be a "Memento Mori" ring than a military one ?

Love it! A 'Split band' type.. Originally a pattern made early by some amateur silversmiths , small firms etc.. Looks period..

Then became a popular style for a time.. That looks professionally made. Nicely made, stamped content,,Very nice example. Harder and harder to find and good to see. someone got a nice piece!,, thanks for posting..

Hello everyone, I wanted to show you an infrequent ring with a skull
But I could not compress the photo, so I'll just throw off the number under which the ring is on evay.de
Who wants to look

Those hallmarks look worryingly good. I was always under the impression this pattern was part Memento Mori, part fantasy. Gaspare will enlighten.

Correct, it is a old pattern.. I've seen a old [prewar] advert for it years ago advertising it as a 'Mourning Ring'..

The ring has been in continual production for probably 80 years! The one shown has the newer band,,and what some call the 3rd row of teeth! But this ring from the photos look new and has some faults to it.. I will try and get photos on..

if these rings have been in continuous production for 80 years, where are they?
This ring looks new because it is in excellent condition.
I saw rings with the third row of teeth dug and I am SURE NOT ONLY I

they are everywhere.. I took 5 sec. and found another on German eBay... IF you like them go right ahead and buy them..

My opinion,,band way too thick, too wide,,and not even polished.. Besides the fact it looks brand new.. But as I mentioned you like it go right ahead. But IF you wait,, I guarantee you one will come up a lot cheaper....

there are some with a slightly different band, 2 row teeth, nice thin band and full finish all around I would say are pre war , maybe even wartime but I do not collect this pattern.. But please, feel free to form your own opinion.

This really should go in the Superfake topic..

Well a couple weeks later,,we see here the same exact ring.. And don't worry as he has 8 of them to sell!

- * So now we must beware of these hallmarks so be very careful!

https://www.ebay.de/itm/Skull-Ring-Husarenring-Totenkopf-Silber-835-1/264982270176?hash=item3db22c90e0:g:DtEAAOSwAp1fviB1


So there are authentic examples of this pattern that pre date the war and yes still currently being manufactured.. IF you must have one in my opinion I'd look for a 'solid' inner. IF you see another of the hollow type you like also look for that thin and tapered band,,and real ageing, wear...


So photos - 1st hallmarks and 2nd ring listed. Seems he or whoever are already making copies of copies of copies..

@Gaspare
I want one of those "hussar" rings as a wearer. That link you posted, is it worth $20 or are there any better ones out there for the same price or even cheaper?

actually Mahler searching around the net,,,20 euro + shipping , thats not a bad price

Probably searching your local/national ebay , and skull rings for sale, on the internet will give you some comparisons... Some maybe cheaper but the quality / detail will be terrible so be careful..

The first link to my ring
Everything else that Gaspare posts has been on the Internet for several years.
Even the hallmarks are stamped in a different order in my ring

@Gaspare, thanks, I bought one, pretty cheap and not that bad looking repo for a wearer.

@Powar, yeah that's odd, myself have never seen one with the Laurin mark after the silverstamp. Isn't the laurin mark the last thing that's stamped on a ring? hmm

@Mike That's a neat looking ring right there, that grin is priceless!
