Hannah has a gold ring which was her grandmother’s wedding ring. The hallmarks were too small to read so I decided to photograph the ring with my macro setup. I’ve messed with the contrast and sharpness of this picture – it’s not an artistic photograph, it’s just to aid the readability of the hallmarks.
According to a gold hallmark identification wizard, this ring…
|…was made by a jeweller with initials SH|
|…was hallmarked prior to 1975 and is 22 carat gold|
|…was assayed in Birmingham|
|…was hallmarked in 1863|
Hannah was surprised to see that it was as old as 1863, and might mean it was a family heirloom that was passed down the generations. Who knows!
