This is a hefty antique banded agate 900 silver ring in a US size 10 1/2. The ring is unmarked but tests positive for silver content close to sterling grade, estimated to be 900 grade silver. The stone is black agate with a single band of white across it. The stone is set in a decorative collar setting with many toothed prongs holding it secure. The band is decorated as well, all the way around, and the shoulders have further Etruscan style granulation decorations.
This ring weighs a substantial 15.4 gr. The stone measures 14mm in diameter. The face of the ring is .625" across. The band is 7mm, or .25" wide.
This sturdy antique ring is not flashy like a faceted stone, nor bright like gold, yet it evokes a feeling of power.
