Posted By: mark H Tue, Aug 08, 2017 IP: 68.112.136.190

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me an age of this ring, also if it would be a very old signet ring . it is very large at about 1" diameter and weighs nearly an ounce . I cant seem to see any hallmarks , Thanks

Your ring appears to be silver, and carries a family crest - possibly from the UK rather than Europe.

The device is a griffin grasping a snake in its beak.

I found an image of a very similar crest on a website called myfamilysilver.com. They may be able to help you find the family name.
