Sorry, I can’t help with details, but I just have to say, what a lovely and super sweet ring.  I love it.

It looks like K&D 14k. Were those their initials?

It’s lovely! I know that there are silver hallmarks that give you a lot of information and there are books and online sources to reference. I don’t know that gold is the same. I would assume the K and D to be initials the way that they are engraved. Are those your great-grandparents initials?

Wow it’s gorgeous! I’m shocked that it’s that old, it seriously looks new. Would be lovely worn alone or in a stack.

Apparently, according to the rather comprehensive but very readable site above,  hallmarks were not compulsory before the 1900’s so you may well be right about the date, or even earlier. 
l wonder if the initials might be  standing for something privately sentimental, like Kid and Darling or something? I love it btw.
