Default Ring with a "V" inside?

Howdy...
Am unable to post a photo at this time… but found in a park, a nice heavy ladies silver ring… inside of the band it states 925 (easy enough)… but also stamped little to the side of that, is what looks like a large “V” with a small square – sort of tipped onto one of the points of the edge so it looks a bit diamond shaped – inside of the top portion of the “V”. The ring is fairly thick/heavy with a large (what looks like) peridot stone… probably around the 2 kt size.

Really nice looking ring, but am wondering what the inside stamp (into the silver) symbol stands for? Anyone know? Not sure the peridot is real or not, but again, good looking heavy silver ring with large peridot stone etc…

Thanks folks. Wish I could post a photo.. but camera battery is out.

Can you draw a picture of what the stamp looks like?

Most likely it is the maker's mark.

The drawing is a great idea, but should be getting my new battery today/tomorrow... will post ppic when I do... until then, its a wife topped "V" with a sort of diamond symbol fitting between the the two top ends of the "V". I agree probably the maker (would that be a hallmark then?)... but wonder who etc...

Thanks folks.

That mark means its a special ring. When that ring and another are placed together , it turns those who wear it into mermaidman and barnicle boy superheroes.

Default This it?

I found a ring with a mark like you described a few weeks ago. I found the attached link with a picture of the design that was on my ring. It's about half way down the page:

"Vargas --*V* imposed over an elongated diamond shape"

http://www.illusionjewels.com/costumejewelrymarksv.html

Is that the same mark as on your ring??

Close, but here is a photo, not a very good one, seems my camera hates macro mode... hope you can see the "V" with the small square inside, on a point so it looks more "diamond-ish".

On the other side is the 925 stamp... not shown...

Hmmm, anyone have any idea what that hallmark is? I have been searching... still no luck - weird.

Thanks.

Default The V with the small square... an answer!

I was stumped by this question myself, so I researched it for hours. It turns out it's not a V and a small square, but the numerals 80 (۸۰) in Farsi (Persia/Iran) or Arabic which uses the same numerals, which I believe indicates .80 silver. I signed up on this forum because I saw your question and I was equally curious. Regards to all.

azdirtdigger, thanks for the Vargas makers mark idea. That is an exact match for a sterling ring I found many years ago! It was a low lying wet area where I found it nearly 10" deep.
