This ring, while truly an antique, has very little monetary value but it is invaluable to me. There are two diamond chips in the center of two opals. It is my great-grandmother's engagement ring dating back to 1893. It was passed to me as her namesake. My dad gave it to me when I was 15 or 16 and I wore it all the time until I damaged he band in the back. I looked into having it repaired but any repair might damage the inscription, so damaged it will remain. I still wear it occasionally.
I learned this week that small items are very hard to photograph.
