Dutch gold antique ring from Amsterdam 17th Century

(Click the picture to get to this beauty)

This time we present you a ring where, besides the country it was made, we even know the town it was made in. And to be even more precise we think this ring was made in the year 1679.

In many countries in Europe guilds guaranteed the integrity of the jewelry trades. They appointed assay-masters to control the objects made of precious metals checking if the right alloy was used. It is by the hallmarks that we can "read" that the ring was made in Amsterdam in the Netherlands (Holland) some 331 years ago.

Antiqualy yours,
