    Sorry for the lack of polishing, but gives you an idea. The ring tests as sterling, almost wondering if that center part might be gold? Is the gold part a symbol for something? Just trying to find similar to get some keywords. Thanks for taking a look.

    Not sure which side is up:


    or this way?

    Kind of interesting texture inside the ring:

    Homemade,sloppy soldering of the "gold" insert and professionals usually don't make that much of a mess with a ball burr on the inside of the ring.

    Thanks for taking a look. This is the only other photo I have of the inside, maybe shows better.


    Why would there be this texture inside? Just part of the design or is it some part of construction?
