    Thanks! And sorry about your neck. I still can't figure out how to straighten out the pics. The oval one and the last one are from Tunisia, the top one is from Libya.

    Typical north african handworks. Nice to see and thanks for sharing.
    Are there any hallmarks?
    Would be interesting too for us

    Here are the hallmarks as requested. The Tunisian rings have very small marks to the shank, easier to see under my jewelers loupe. The Libyan ring has the T800 mark for Tripoli.

    Here are two more Libyan rings from Tripoli. Neither have any DAK markings, and could have been made for either side.

    Yes, this rings (sure period ones) are around with and without any hallmarks, therefore i asked in the case of the first 3 rings.
    Again thanks for sharing this other two beauties!

    Actually, in the case of North African made rings, Whether Allied or DAK, there were strict quality controls, so 99.9 percent of legitimate period rings will have a hallmark. I would stay away from any ring that did not have one

    Interesting opinion, but i think some serios ringcollectors have a different one.

    Otherwise it would be very interesting for me to know the source for this knowledge.
