Heavy Ring made of Pure Gold

Although this ring is made of 999 fineness gold, it doesn't get out of shape that easily 'coz it's thick and heavy.

Bought in 1960 from Tin Sing Goldsmiths situated in Chinatown, this ring weighs exactly 9.44 grams or 0.3035 troy ounce.

Never know a small item like this ring has up to six hallmarks on its inner surface.

Sold to a returned customer on January 31, 2008 at current gold bullion price of US$925 per troy ounce. One troy ounce equals 31.1035 grams, and US$1.00 exchanges for S$1.42. Sold!
