QUESTION: Here is the image of the ring. In the inside of the ring I found some markings attaching photo of those also.

Hello Lisa,
I do not think this ring is very old and I am guessing it is stainless steel. It is a biker ring. There are many copies that you can find on Ebay. Yours may hold more value if it is older and the original ring that copies were mass produced in China. Check out these links:
