Fine pair of Alexander Ritchie silver napkin rings, uncleaned, and in their original box. Both stamped AR IONA and a Chester hallmark for 1907, together with the CS*FS mark (see the section on hallmarks on this site.) Very early pieces and nice to see them in their original box.

Silver finger ring by Alexander Ritchie in the form of an equi-armed Celtic cross. An earlier piece just stamped IONA and AR. No hallmark. A very attractive piece.

Unusual Alexander Ritchie silver ring set with a turquoise stone. Most of Ritchie's rings were made from local Iona marble or carnelian/agate stone from Iona beaches; perhaps this one was made as a request? Hallmarks IONA AR ICA and hallmark for Birmingham 1937.

Very attractive Alexander Ritchie silver scarf ring with central longship design surrounded by turquoise blue enamel. Hallmarked for 1933, and with usual AR IONA ICA stamps. An unusual piece.

Silver finger ring with longship design within a shield, and knotwork design shoulders. The inner band is stamped AR IONA with ICA and a Birmingham hallmark for 1936.
