    You give no reference to scale, if not a bracelete could it be an unfinished ring?

    This looks to be an unfinished ring cause that stamp with the numbers would normally be on rings I think

    this is an memento mori ring in unfinished state, value for a full ring about 20 gbp and in this stage around 10 gbp or less, you see them some times for sale then this style was quiet common in the old days, even pre wwi, but nice pice of history

    some big factorys used to make them in big lots and sold them to juveliers around the world, they just needet to make them round and in the right size as well.

    Digging up an older thread after I realized I have something similar. Bought 15 years ago from an auction, claimed to be an ss totenkof. Only paid 20 bucks or so and would be happy to know if its period or repro.

    Not SS, but a good period ring.

    Cheers, Ade.

    100% unfinished ring. Stamp inside the ring band is 835 - common silver mark in Germany.
