Ok, heres the deal. My aunt passed away from cancer in '96. She was wealthy, and was a very classy person. Most of her jewelery was hand hammered in Italy. Some of the left over jewelery was platinum (the stuff nobody picked out at first) and now my sister has some nice bracelets. Well, my other aunt (sister of the one that died) stayed with her for 2 years during the sickness. My aunt was like the overseer of what was taken and what wasn't. Well, just yesterday, she came to our house (we were having a family dinner thing). She brought some of the jewelery that she had leftover, and she was going to give away if we didnt want it. LOTS of nice stuff. I never really got anything from my aunt that passed away because she was a girl, and...yea. So, I saw this ring, it caught my eye. I asked if I could have that, and my aunt said I could. She was happy that I got something. I am trying to figure out what these markings on the ring mean. Its a nice ring, but I can't figure this out. Looks like a buffalo, a fish, and a shield?
