Ostby and his daughter would go to Europe frequently to come up with designs. Ostby and his daughter went to France in 1912 and booked a trip back to the US on the Titanic.
His daughter made it to a life boat but sadly Mr. This ring is a beautiful example of there work. The ring has a patriotic American eagle and shield with stars on both sides. The center of the ring has a nice natural gold nugget attached. The nugget is about 22k and is a rich yellow that my pics didn't show.
Inside is an inscription initials and the date June 1930. My guesstimate is that the nugget is about 8 grams (give or take).The overall weight of the ring is about 16.1 grams with the dense nugget weighing as much as the band at about 8 grams each. This is a very handsome example. Almost antique at about 90 years old. Good condition for age with light wear and scratches appropriate for age and use. Tested and guaranteed as stated.
