The gold or platinum assay should be marked on the inside of the ring. Failing that a pawnbroker or gold buyer can test the metal and advise what assay the metal content is.
Agree that it’s probably a mans ring, due to the style.
As to its value (your other post) it will mostly be based on the precious metal weight and the quality and carat weight of diamonds.
You can get a rough approximation by measuring their diameter. For eg 6mm width is approx 0.84 carat, 4mm width is approx 0.25 carat, and 2mm width is 0.03 carat.
Looking at the ring I’d say the centre diamond is around 0.50 carat, the 6 (3 each side) of that diamond around 0.05 so that’s 0.30 carat total plus the 1 each side (total 2) around 0.25 carat each, so a guesstimate total would be around 1.3 carat total.
The quality ie colour, cut and clarity of the diamonds has a big influence on their value so it’s not possible to judge from a photo.
You could take it to a pawnbroker and see what they offer, if you multiply that by 2 times, that’s probably what you could get through eBay or similar.
