Default Hefty Silver

I thought this ring looked good when it came out of the ground today. When I got home and put the Polish on it really cleaned up nice. Any ID on the makers mark?? It is silver right?

Definitely looks silver. Looks like a modern ring made to look old IMO. Really nice find!

Not familiar with those markings, except STER means sterling silver. Look legit to me. The stone looks like probably amethyst, but could be simulated. Whopper of a ring! XLT success!

I looked up Native American silver marks, under the letter "F", and found this to be the mark of Carol Felley. Lots of Carol Felley pieces on Ebay, etc. Very nice ring!

Thanks guys, I really like the way it shined up. My wife said it is the prettiest silver ring I have brought home. Happy wife means more time off to hunt!

I found this ring a few years ago and interesting the amethyst changes colors. A natural stone can do that and it ranges from a deep purple to pink to almost white / clear.

No itís not a mood ring.
