    So, these are the only photos I have of these two rings and they are not currently in my possession.
    I’m wondering if it’s possible to determine the approximate age of these.
    Thank You/Sorry!

    Gut feel is late 19th, early 20th, stones set in silver to reflect light better. But more photos are needed, as you might guess. ;)

    The top stone appears to have been cut sometime after 1920,lower photo is too out of focus to tell.The white metal would need to be tested for content.

    Look 1930s-ish to my eye (but I'm no expert.)

    I had a feeling the lack of visual information would make it kind of difficult but I wasn’t sure.
    Thanks for all the replies/comments/information!

    That detailing is so evocative of Georg Jensen's Acorn pattern which dates to 1916.

    Wait to hear what others have to say. But, they're clearly modern in sensibility, streamlined and unsentimental.

    How do you mean, “unsentimental”?

    "Unsentimental" in that the designs are non-traditional. I'd think selected by someone with her own sense of style.

    Gotcha, that makes a lot of sense. I love a description that breathes some life into something, the reminder that someone owned it...in this case probably wore it often. Paradoxically, for me in this case this makes it more sentimental.

    If those are wedding rings (as they appear to be,) do suspect they were worn often.

    I think 20s-30s for the top ring.
    The shape of the shank of the second should ring a bell, but no bells yet.
