Not on my account please. I am not going to be able to interpret anything.

Here are some silver export marks that look nothing like your ring.

I think this is really worth having a museum examine; It does not look ordinary.

Here are some porcelain marks

Here are some old Chinese coins. Old Korean coins look very similar (Modern ones have Hangul of course). This was interesting to look at; I was not aware of the knife and shovel money.

None of this resembles your ring at least to my eye.

p.s. I thought that the tall character inside the ring might be 美 (měi) possibly "beauty" with the bottom of it opened up near the furigana/ruby characters
