My late father-in-law left a ring which he apparently wore in 1916. It appears to be a school ring since he would have been 18 years old at the time. The enameled cloisonné face has the dates 1914 and 1916 on either side of the face. Does any one recognize such a ring and would it be attached to any school. It must have meant something to him as it was one of the few possessions he was able to take with him as the family escaped from Germany in 1938.
