Dating a Finnish Chalcedony Gold Ring
by: Jeanne

Thanks for everyone's help in trying to determing the age of the ring - I've attached different photo of the last hallmark which may determine the age. I also found a very similar ring but in sterling and a different stone - this can be viewed at
www.925-1000.com/f_kaunis.html
Another page shows a very similar hallmark but again it is for sterling
www.925-1000.com/Ffinland_date_code.html - view the pics along the side.




many, many thanks to all who have contributed. Jeanne

Antique Gold Ring or Modern
by: Anonymous

"The Finnish dating system indicates that R7 is 1970."
I think it's important to separate the church from the state;-)
The church being antique jewelry and the state being contemporary jewelry and the latter being of no concern to us in this forum.
R7 date mark = 1970 and 1919

Without the benefit of a close-up image of the hallmark, from my angle the hallmarks, seem to appear quite worn, indicating a historic gold hallmark. Also the stone is cut en-cabochon. This style of cut was mainly used in antiquity but came back into fashion in the art nouveau era between the 1890's and the early 1900s.

Finnish blue chalcedony ring
by: Anonymous

Thank you so much for helping me to identify the date markings on the ring - any clues as to the last hallmark? Now that I have the date I will also do research via the internet and my local library but I think I will need the help of an expert. If need be I can try and draw by pencil the last hallmark as it was hard to try and get it in the picture. Many thanks again for your help.

Finnish Antique Hallmarks
by: Yvonne Hammouda-Eyre

Hi Jeanne - the R7 mark you see inside your beautiful chalcedony Finnish antique gold ring, is not actually the ring size, but the date letter. Date letters on Swedish metals are identical to Finnish date letters. R7=1919
