Elegant Antique French 18k gold vermeil on .800 (nearly sterling) silver 2" napkin ring with "Guy" inscription or dedication! This one bears the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the curved outer shaping and tiny number "2" within that marks means it's in .800 or finer solid silver (at least 80% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is most likely for Victor Demare, Paris circa 1892. One of several superb antique French napkin rings that we’re adding today, among a host of other fabulous treasures so, be sure to browse some while you’re with us. Thanks!

Excellent condition really. This one weighs 34 grams, built to last, great condition as you can see from the images. Faint surface scuffing possible but no loss to the silver plating, no dents, damage or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
