SSJEWEL #35662C Stylized Studentenbund Ring
The ring is silvered and largely plain, with a wide band and somewhat roughy hewn edges. Rising high off the face of the ring is an elongated diamond and swastika, surrounded by a tightly hashed border. There is a central ridge line running out from the horizontal apices of the diamond, continuing about a third of the way back on to the band and forming four shallow fluted areas. In each of these flutes is a nicely detailed oak leaf. The oak leaves and the legs of the swastika have accumulated some verdigris over the years, so I'm guessing the base metal is copper. It is unmarked so I can't be sure.
The surface of the ring shows some age wear, particular on the interior of the band. There is no damage, however, and the weathered look actually adds to lot of character to the piece.
A very attractive piece of period jewelry here; Studentenbund artifacts are not commonly seen.
SSJEWEL #42045C Luftwaffe Flight Instructor Ring with Bring-back Paper
This ring has real grandeur about it and appears to be of all nickel silver as it is not marked inside. The ring is the size of a college class ring. In the center it has a double circle which has the words "Luftwaffe Ausrildungen" which I believe translates out to a flight instructor. In the center is a raised early style eagle clutching a swastika. On the left side of the ring is the raised out date 1941 and on the right side of the ring it pictures what appears to me to be an ME 109 airplane. The edges of the ring are all decorated with raised oak leaves. This ring is really great looking and shows only minor wear. It is about a size 10.
The ring also comes with its original bring-back paper which mentions the ring on the paper. The paper was given to T5 Robert L. Pflanz and is dated 27 August 1945. It is signed by the commanding officer. Apparently Pflanz also brought back "One German Knife One German Pistol P38 Serial Number 2646 with Holster" but apparently the vet most have sold those other items prior to the ring. At any rate this is a very very fine example and something that I feel is extremely collectible. It is a great looking ring!

The imperial flag is a red, black and white color and the Austrian flag is black at the top and yellow at the bottom.

A fine old piece here.
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.

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 #44155 Private Purchase SS Ring
This ring appears to have been a private purchase and is really quite captivating. The center area has beaded circle which contains a set of enameled SS runes similar to how they appear on the dagger. On each side of the center area are two raised stylized swastikas being the same variety as we see on the center band of a chained SS dagger. The ring is a size 11. Inside it is marked with a set of SS runes within a circle and also "900" which indicates it is of fine silver. The ring shows some toning and only the most nominal of wear. Quite a captivating looking example here that appears to have been something that may have been privately purchased by a SS man.

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 #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.
