This is an unusual ring. We have a Georgian, circa 1800, intaglio of Benjamin Franklin, set into a 9 carat (unmarked but tested, yellow gold ring. I'm not certain when the intaglio was set into the ring. The setting is not as old as the intaglio. It is most likely circa 1900. The ring is like so many antique rings. it sizes one way upright on the sizer, the way one would wear it, and it sizes another way when turned over backward. Front wise it measure between a 7 and 7and 1/4, and that's the way it fits my index finger, so that's the most accurate size. It weighs 4.95 grams and the beveled intaglio measures 6/8 of an inch North to South and 1/2 inch East to West,
