This is one of the highest-quality patriotic rings that we have offered. The band and some portions of the ring’s center are made of .800 silver, making it an early-war piece. [As WW I’s length increased, Germany’s precious metals supply greatly decreased]. The ring’s obverse features an intricate, partial filigree design on either side of the Iron Cross (along with some lettering that we are unable to translate). Its center displays the enamel Iron Cross. A gold-toned crown appears at the cross’s top, followed by a “W” in its center, and a “1914” at its bottom, both of which are also gold-toned. The band’s interior displays an .800 silver hallmark in its center. The ring is a size 7.
This splendid ring can be worn with pride or set up as a handsome display. It has been years since I have seen a ring as lovely as this one.
German patriotic jewelry, rings, lockets, pendants, and necklaces are a very sentimental category. Each time we are fortunate to receive patriotic jewelry it always seems to come with its own personality. We imagine how this piece was worn by its owner to show their patriotism and support. If you have any questions regarding the German patriotic jewelry please contact us 727.233.6173 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Der Rittmeister Militaria has been providing collectors with over 20 years of service and look forward to another 20 years of treasures.
