Grandads old ring!!


Recommended Posts

Further to my successful bracelet post yesterday, it reminded me of this ring that I got from my Grandad back in the day. It's been in my drawer for best part of 25 years, so it might be time to turn it into something more useful.

Do these pictures reveal enough to discern what the marks say, it's all a bit worn? 

As my  resident experts @stefffana, @Roy I will directly include you, but please don't feel pressure to get involved.

Again, any help welcome and I will look to sell if it turns out to be gold.

Thanks for your time 👍

For this one, I will advice to check it first at any cash converters or jeweller shop. They will tell you exactly what alloy is. The hallmarks are not readible, even long time ago the ring was stamped.

From pictures look 9ct, but it is difficult to say 100% without acid or other test. Can be even higher gold alloy, who knows?

Will do.👍

So guys, just been to a jeweller and they couldn't read the hallmark either so assay tested it for me. Apparently it is 9 carat after all and weighs a hefty 7.7g although my phone camera couldn't pick it up very well. My kitchen scales hovered between 7  and 8 to be fair, that could explain why my cakes are sh*t!!

@stefffana, are we looking at spot plus post again? Just an old ring right?🤷

Thanks for your help Stefan, at least we know what it is now.

You could always contact @LiquidMetalsUK and get it melted and cast as something else to maybe wear. Same metal but something else to keep and or wear it.

Like this idea...key ring /dog tag etc

Thanks guys, I appreciate the idea. In fact it is quite a nice one.

Only problem being, my two little ones felt a little sad when they realised that their big sister had been left  my grandmas bracelet, so I might have treated them from this.

 Had an idea.  Let's see whether it's any good@LiquidMetalsUK
