This is really interesting.
Can you post pics of all angles, not just close-ups?
I cant quite tell exactly where the threads are.
This may help to figure it out.

My guess is that it was part of a set, for a brooch or ring.

The section where the threads are looks larger than normal, because you normally see attachments more like this:


Very pretty though!

@kgizo I wondered that as well. I have also pondered things like a button cover, the top of an ultra fabulous cane, or part of a cap of a super cool perfume bottle:lol-2:

I Iike all those ideas!!! Your ring had a fabulous prior life and has wonderful jewelry karma.

It may have had a compartment to hold a lock of hair....

@MjK1 I had considered that as well, but feel like it was a component to either a set or had some other use.

@ForteKitty Thank you for posting the link to that piece, it is really an intriguing and beautiful Brooch! I have wondered since noticing the threading on the inside of the disc, what the other piece(s) that go along with it might include.
