LIVING IN SOUTH LOUISIANA MY ENTIRE LIFE, I HAVE SINUS ISSUES AND NO SENSE OF SMELL!! This ring is not marked, but has been tested by a jeweler as 10K gold. This is a band ring, that has a hinge in the back, and the sides have a push in opening near the center plate, that opens to reveal braided hair around the interior band. The panels that open have an etched design on both sides. The center panel has not been engraved.I cant put my hands on my ring sizer right now, but this is a larger size, measuring 15/16 outside of the band, 3/4 inside of the band. The gram weight is 4. Normal age related wear and scratches, but nothing excessive. A super nice 10K mourning ring that would compliment any collection!! We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
Our home is smoke and pet free, but a lot of our items come from estate sales, and we don't know what the conditions were in the homes. We also use recycled packing materials to keep the costs down, so the same applies to these materials.
