Default May has been a sloooow month

Like everyone this time of year I'm getting busy getting ready for summer. Gas prices are through the roof, so I didn't get out nearly as much as I did in April. I did however score some beautiful pieces, although not thrift prices, still a bargain. The first 2 rings cost me 160.00 The first ring is from the 1930s, they used more metal than stone during this time period. I'm goofy over it. Has anybody out there ever found one of these metal detecting? The 2nd one I just thought was very interesting with the 2 doves kissing. I bought that one more for resale. The Charlotte pin is gold filled wire, I bought that for a man-friend up north who just became a grandpa. Now the next ring I got off the internet for 125.00 it's 18k, platinum and small diamonds and don't know quite what the time period is on it. Next is a gold filled cross just for resale purposes. And last but surely not least is a 14kt. gold and 1 carat (minus the 1 stone) diamond bracelet. That cost me $50.00. I had to have a prong fixed and a stone put in, so I opted to be different as usual, and have a ruby put in there. It makes it a one of a kind. The jeweler actually thought it was pretty cool also. Hoping next month I can get out and find some CHEAP stuff....LOL Oh I did get 2 vintage watchbands that kinda go with the Korean sweetheart bracelet that I found last month. One is gold but I would have had to shave it down to fit and I don't like destroying stuff so I opted for the 2nd one, it is a spiedel gf rose. I looked that one up on the internet and my mouth hit the ground looking at what they want for these. Anyway..everyone have and incredible weekend and please be safe out there! Just found a few more finds..10kt earrings, "coin" bracelet, vintage shell pendant and not pictured is a 925 $ (money) pendant. Whewww..

Is that a makers mark on left hand side of band? I can't make it out or is it dirt?

Ring looks like 30's/40's to me I like it though...

If you see a makers mark try this site: https://www.langantiques.com/university/country/usa/


I like the ring sitting on the is that a trap?
