Let me know the size. I am not sure what you mean as dish ring. Do you mean a napkin ring?

I also need one picture of any and all marks you described.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I said it’s a dish ring. It’s not a napkin ring. Since you don’t know what a silver dish ring is I can’t see how you’re an expert and consequently can’t help me.
Please refund any charges you have made to my card.
Thanks

Your photo was cropped in so close that it is hard for me to tell what this is and the size of it.

I just need to know the size and to see the marks. The word dish ring is not a common term in silver, so

I am just asking for more info so I can be most accurate. Where I live, we call these potato rings and I need to be sure it is the same item.

We call these potato rings where I live, so that is where the confusion was.

Please do feel free to add photos of the marks so we can continue.
