Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
At your convenience, please send photos. A full image with the design and a clear, in-focus close-up of the mark would be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
When evaluating an item, photos are essential to helping me come to a correct assessment.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Nothing just Paris 1900 C.R. had a jeweler look at it yesterday and they confirmed that is what's inscribed.
Expert:  Wayne replied 1 year ago.
Hi,
Your ring was most likely a souvenir sold at the 1900 Exposition in Paris AKA (The worlds fair). This is collectible. the C.R. is most likely the initials of the person who bought this or who it was given to. This is collectible and would sell for $200-300 at auction and Insurance value is $500.
Thank you,
Wayne
Here is a link that will give you some history of the Exposition.
