A grand silver ring in the Renaissance style, replete with grotesque faces at each shoulder—masked faces or rams head with horns and gaping mouth?

The shank continues with cyma scrolls and a gadrooned section at the center back.

The grotesques support an oval (18x24mm) tablet central mount (now blank – awaiting engraving) 6mm thick, with applied silver swags all around.

There are two hallmarks inside, one with two letters, and one with a bird?

This is an amazing ring, weighing 15+g, and a size 9 ½.
