Now here's an old ring I purchased from a reputable seller I often deal with. Though it is not marked, she said she tested it and found it to be positive for silver. She bought it from a closing Antique shop in Hammonton, New Jersey.

I believe this is from the 1940s and made during wartime when most metals were banned for commercial use and relegated for the war effort. As a result, silver became the metal of choice for jewelry.
Crystal & rhinestones, which were purchased from Europe, became unobtainable and thus less was used. Jewelry from this era was more simple and not very flashy. I have read that during this time, many of the silver pieces had a content not high enough to qualify as sterling. I believe this ring is a case in point. It is an adjustable size 5 1/2 done in an Art Nouveau style.
I find it interesting that the inner petals are closed like a flower in the night. It is in very good condition for its age with only minor surface wear and a piece of history at your fingertips!

*Typical age-wear. It is VERY RARE for vintage/antique jewelry to entirely escape the tolls of time. :(

*Sorry...NO SALES outside U.S. & Canada!
