I don’t know, but it is beautiful! Looks old due to the rough cut. The symbol may have historical signifigance too. Crown, laurels, shield and a half-moon… Turkish maybe? You may want to get it appraised, just in case it is really something historic!

I can’t see the markings too well. Could you take a better photo? Or you could just write them down.

Hi, the 375 means it is 9ct gold and the anchor means that the Assay Office (where it was made ) was Birmingham UK. Hope this helps a little.

I know that markings inside (at least older European) rings represent what year and where they were made, I’d bet it’s like that. I’d take it to a good jeweler/antiques person and find out what each symbol means, or find a magnifying glass, see what they look like, and look them up 🙂

Did a touch more digging for you it looks like the C at the end means it was made in 1902 🙂 that’s pretty old!

Wow, that’s beautiful. I second getting it appraised.
