    I think this is a ring. Marked 925 on the inside. Measures a size 12 1/2. The border detail is pretty awesome and very detailed. No makers mark. Any idea on age?

    It was made by the Newari people, Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Maybe a Hippie Trail souvenir. The shape is unusual, most have straight tops.

    Thanks Any. Any idea of how old it is? The 925 do not look as modern. Here is a better picture.

    They started marking 925 pretty late, so I guess post-1970.

    It looks pretty new to me - 90s or later and probably 2000s.

    Quite possible. In this case it doesn't really matter valuewise, it isn't antique.
