hello, I am new here and need help deciphering the symbols on the old gold ring. It came from Poland but I don't know where it was made originally. I researched the marks but couldn't find any like these. One looks like a roman head profile facing left sandwiched betweend 3 and k , the other is possibly the same head stamp without the 3 and k and third stamp looks like a drawing compass, possibly? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

I just searched cyrillic numbers, and the symbol that looks like a "3", might be cyrillic(Russian) for "60".
Could this ring be from Russia?
Maybe this refers to gold content.
60% of 24 would make this ring 14k ---
I'm just guessing here.

My post above is all wrong!!! LOL

Here is a posting from another forum about Polish gold marks. This will help you decipher the marks.
A similar one like yours is shown. Apparently K is for Krakow.
Translation of the marks in the post are listed further down the page. It dates your ring 1931-1939.

Beautiful ring!

thank you for the link, it was very helpful :). The ring doesn't have Polish nor Russian design style but I am not an expert. I am a little closer to solve this mystery!
