    Looks like smoky quartz, typical for size and color. The bottom one looks like a very pale amethyst.

    The top is probably smoky topaz. The bottom might be amethyst. Can you post pics with more light?

    Another vote for smokey quartz for the brown and a light coloured Amethyst for the pale purple one, can you take better pics showing the top of the ring and more of the stone of the second one?

    Hi thankyou for your replies I have put some more pictures on I got both rings passed on to me from my German grandmother who sadly passed away aged 91 all I know is that at least one of the rings was her mams and she lived in mendon Germany throughout the war I’m sure they were quite well off I can remember a story about my great grandmother dressing the children in rags when the Americans were going round the houses

    I would say smoky quartz and amethyst too.

    The 333 should indicate 8 CT gold or 33 percent gold content. When marked 375, that's 9 CT gold. The rings are likely European made due to the 333 marking.
