    A modern creation I’m afraid.

    You should test the silver also , it’s probably 925 content

      Hmm, is the skull hollow? And do you have better pics of the stamps? Looks like a 900 and then two that are hard to make out. It might be ok, an early ring or an Austrian piece. The skull appearance is definitely much more anatomical and mean looking than the odd caricatures expected of 1920s and 1930s rings. Small size? Lightweight or heavier?

          Johan- i would request some better Pictures from the seller if it is an item you are considering for purchase. If the seller refuses, walk away. Otherwise those at least are descriptions of good hallmarks. The one I was looking at in particular was the head stamp, meaning the bear or boar or however it was described. There are lots of silver stamping guides out there- they will give information on content marks, maker marks, import/export stamps, and even date hallmarks. You could have many of these going on there- get better pics and research it. Also if you can see if there’s a solder line alon the skull edge- sometimes these were separated/joined right before the attach spot, like a long seam that was closed along the skull too by the jeweler. These would be light and hollow skulls, often showing signs of damage from the slightest bump. This isn’t an exclusive manufacturing tell or qualification, solid rings exist- but it’s helpful to see if that’s what you have!

            Nr.34530 is not similar like this ring.

            I have these two rings : Nr.34536 & Nr.34531

              No, that’s a different manufacturer altogether. I have two of those ones on the far left- they’re often overlooked as kantinenringe. IF you have a good piece, it’s likely early- 20s/ interwar- and Austrian, German, etc- all had these. Maybe they were military related as vets and freikorps, sa men had them. But they could be memento mori- very popular pre ww2. Many were small, like kids rings even. But you need to get better pics for sure
