Well it looks like it’s sterling silver, but I’m not sure what the stones are.  Maybe sapphires or lapis?

Totalkaos1983:  I think if you cleaned the ring we could better tell if it was lapis or sapphire. Right now I’m going with lapis, it’s more opaque than sapphire. Housebee is right, the 925 stamp means it’s sterling silver.

Totalkaos1983:  It looks kind of like an “R” or maybe a 12? It’s probably the maker’s mark.. or it could be an R for Rhodium plated. I’m not sure.

Definitely looks like lapis set in silver. Lapis Lazuli can vary in colour, from a very dark blue/black, to a lighter, more royal colour. And the ‘R’ should be the maker’s mark as it comes before the type the metal. Any plating, etc. is generally listed after the type of metal stamp.

Totalkaos1983:  Agreed that the “R” or “12” (or “B”?) is most likely the maker’s mark

here is a website you can search through with a bunch of silver hallmarks to figure out that 12/r thing!

it says 12 925 which means it is 92.5 sterling silver with 12 karat gold and its made in china

Totalkaos1983:  well, the point of stamping a hallmark is to show who made it – so if not this site, that mark will be somewhere else on either the internet or in a registry somewhere of hallmarks!
