SSJEWEL #43608C Silver JG53 Luftwaffe Ring
In the center fo the ring is a rectangle surrounding by sun rays going out from a diamond shape containing an Ace of Spades. The ace was the crest of JG 53, a Luftwaffe fighter-wing of World War II. It operated in Western Europe and in the Mediterranean. Jagdgeschwader 53, or as it was better known, the "Pik As" (Ace of Spades) Geschwader, was one of the oldest German fighter units of World War II with its origins going back to 1937. JG 53 flew the various models of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 throughout World War II.
There are accent lines and a Luftwaffe eagle on each side of the ring. The inside is unmarked and looks as though the size of the ring may have been changed. It is currently a size 9.
A very rare ring here. If only it could talk!
SSJEWEL #43745C SS Honor Ring
This SS Honor Ring is in striking condition, being one of the best examples we have had the pleasure to offer. The Totenkopf skull is all there to include all of the leering teeth, as well as the crisp nasal area and eyes. Each and every runic symbol is clear and concise to even include the often blurred or missing double lower rune which combines SS runes and the proficiency arrow called Heilszeichen. This sign represented salvation. The runes around the ring are as follows: The single sigrunne called "Siegrune" being a symbol of victory, the "Hagel" rune being unshakable faith, the "Hakenkreuz" and the "Heilszeichen" mentioned above. Below the skull symbol is a prominent seam, which is always nice to see on these rings.
This "Ehrenring" is deeply engraved inside with the dedication, "S. lb. Achatz 21.12.43 H. Himmler" Many rings were given on December 21, as this is the day of Winter Solstice, celebrated by the SS. We have examined all of our SS rank lists and have not come up with a listing for the recipient "Achatz", which normally means the ring was owned by an SS NCO, and not an Officer. I have written to Ross Kellbaugh, the SS research specialist, and he seemed to think that he will be able to identify this recipient, and then will proceed with assembling a dossier. When this information is forth coming, I would be delighted to forward it to the next owner of this impressive ring. The ring is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, signed by Don Boyle, the world's foremost SS ring expert.
An outstanding opportunity here to acquire a ring in second-to-none condition, and hopefully a follow-through with an identification of the original owner. These rings were awarded only to selected SS members according to very specific and strict criteria. The SS Ehrenring was considered the most coveted item to be awarded by the SS, even placed more highly than the SS Honor Degen. This rings continue to gain popularity among collectors and prices seem to rise accordingly. An excellent potential hobby investment quality item.

SSJEWEL #42010C Political Style Wedding Ring
I'm guessing that it is a "Political" style ring, as it could have easily been worn by an SS man.
A very choice item here, mostly likely worn by a man given the size... although I suppose it could have been the property of a burly milkmaid.

SSJEWEL #43178C Two Third Reich Vintage "Thor's Hammers"
The first of these Hammers is made of amber and retains the original tag. The piece measures about 1 ½ inches long, with a single "S" rune inscribed in the center. The amber is quite beautiful, with interesting internal colors. The original paper tag reads "N. B. I. Nord Deutsche Bernstein Industrie", "bernstein" being the German word for amber. The hammer has a fitting so it can be hung on a chain.
The second hammer is very heavy, being made of solid bronze. This hammer is nearly two inches long, decorated with a vaulted cross strap and what appears to be riveted hardware. The top of the hammer has a hole to accept a chain. You'd need a stout chain to wear this hammer as it is quite heavy.
Two very interesting and rarely seen pieces here.
SSJEWEL #43066C Eastern Front Ring
It has a square center with a raised out rising sun with a mobile swastika over it. At the bottom is the word "Ostfront". There are no marking on this ring.
This ring looks to be about a size 12, and shows some minor wear and age. The details, however, remain quite clear.
An impressive period private purchase ring here.
SSJEWEL #42013C Silver Luftwaffe Ring
The sides of the ring are smooth and the eagle is set into a sort of a frame. Unfortunately there is wear to the detailing on the bird as well as to the swastika; the original owner most likely wore this ring quite often.
The ring is a size 9 and is silver hallmarked "835".
A good, original piece of Luftwaffe jewelry here.
SSJEWEL #40535C Eva Braun Signet Ring
This ring is quite delicate, very feminine and rather small. It is formed of 14K gold and has a heart theme on the top. Beautifully engraved into the heart are the initials "E. B.".
The ring shows normal wear throughout. The interior is marked "585".
An absolutely original item here.

SSJEWEL #36509C Silver Reichsmark Coin Bracelet
This bracelet is extremely well made, being constructed of six five Reichsmark coins. The coins feature Paul von Hindenburg on the obverse and the German eagle on the reverse. One of the coins just off center features the German eagle grasping a swastika.
The coins have all been slightly curved to lay properly against a wrist. They are connected together by way of eyelets, two located on each side of the coin. These coins all have varying dates, running from 1934 through 1939. There is a catch on one end of the bracelet, with a push button that connects to a sliding catch on the far end. The catch is marked, “800”, indicating silver construction.
There is a small safety chain with an opening eyelet which also acts to secure the bracelet in the event that the main catch opened inadvertently.
A most beautiful design here, and prime example of fine period craftsmanship.
SSJEWEL #28927C War Merit Cross-style Ring
The center area though, instead of a swastika, has a head of a goddess. This may mean that medal is for some other country other than Germany, but if it is I do not know the pedigree.
Someone out there that wants the ring may very well know its correct identification.
A good looking period ring here.
SSJEWEL #36439C Unusual Silver Skull Ring
This ring is quite dramatic, with a long skull that has "jeweled" eyes and a nose with a similar look. The top of the skull has the initials "WPME", The skull is retained by serpents at the sides, which form the ring portion.
It is not hallmarked but obviously silver. It is marked "FELGER".
A striking fantasy piece here.
