Why is there such a note on the ring?
Hello and thanks for the tip,

The note was made by a jeweler who was supposed to determine the pure gold value. But that is totally secondary because we don't really want to sell it. Unless there is a story about the ring that our family wouldn't like.
Thank you again and I once again ask everyone who is familiar for their help .... it is very, very important to me personally to confirm my picture of my grandparents.
Kind regards,
Michael Jokel

Tin was on the Amber thread. The ring owner is called Micha. I think something went wrong.

Hello mj9968,

This ring is a masonic chapter ring, as it is customary in the great state box of the Freemasons of Germany (but also in the Scandinavian countries) and is awarded from the 8th degree. The letters IDS stand for the creed of the order "In Domino Spes" (In the Lord is hope). This ring can also be worn on the middle finger of the right hand in everyday life.
If you are interested in the value, depending on the design (symbols in real enamel or "only" painted) and gold content, the new prices at the relevant dealers range between 895 and up to 1700 €.

Hope I could help a little!

With best regards,
Don Hubert

@Don Hubert,
welcome here in our forum and on the portal.
This thread is a bit older, so I don't know if the thread creator will read this.
But how about if you create an account and then write to us more often? You can certainly contribute a lot.

Dear questioner,
that is a chapter ring. The letters in the correct order are IDS (in domino spes). The ring is used in the great state box of the Freemasons of Germany. It is reserved for the higher grades.
That means the owner of the ring was probably a chapter member of a province of the GLdFvD.
