Went to a tiny military show this Sunday after church.. And what do I see??

This beauty.. Sorry about the poor photos but all that we had was my friends cell phone and a few min the guy let it out of the case..

Had a tiny maker mark in a square. It's 10k gold. Very small size. Very detailed with small flowers [edelweiss?],,probably a young womans, BDM?.. - * I have at least 2 advertisements for this exact pattern,,,I'll try and dig them up during the week and post..

- I let the ring go :(,,didn't buy it but had the guys card.... 20 min later when I got home I thought,,,'WTF did I just do'!?! Called the guy up and made a deal for the ring... Should have it when the PO flys its storks over for mail delivery grin

More /better photos when I get it...

Oh It just took some time to hit me... My mind was preoccupied when I was authenticating it for the guy.... 20 min later and we were cutting a deal for it.. I should have in about a week depending on our lovely postal system!!

I have a couple adverts for it, just haven't had time to find them, but I will and get them up here eventually......

I have an exact advert for this ring but,,, do not have permission to use it. When this happens I have a couple choices,,,,use the ad the person gracefully sent me maybe never getting help from their archives again frown ,,,, or waiting.... This time I'll have to wait.

I do have a few I have I'll post. They are not exact but close and in gold and custom order with your initial hand engraved on..... When you see these rings they are almost always very early [prewar] and a small size.. If you have one I invite you to post. They are rare and in few collections.

ring finally came in.. A beauty. The engraving is top notch!! A very small size , 6.5! so more than likely a young woman's..

What a find! and it's in 10k gold as well. Definitely pre ww2, might even be pre ww1, late 1800s early 1900s.

That's what I was thinking but I'm not sure. The initial are RL? maybe G.. Would have to look up the last initial. G do you know?

one unrecognizable hallmark.

Static Swas,,tiny Edelweiss ...

I have an advert for the exact ring ,,,but I do not own it,,has never been shown on the internet,, and only have permission to use on another project.....

I'm looking for the publication [1930 German] but not many out there.. Never say never though!!..
