Antique 1920s Chinese Carnelian Silver Ring With Longevity Symbol

Antique 1920s Art Deco Chinese export silver carnelian ring. On each side is the Chinese symbol for longevity. It has a faint gold wash over the silver, but has a more silver tone overall. Marked what I believe to say "SILVER". I believe it to be coin silver, which was commonly used by the Chinese during this time frame. The detail in the ring is amazing. Ring is adjustable. (currently a size 7) 

Ring is adjustable. (currently a size 7)
Top of the ring: 5/8" by 1/2"

---Some light scratching on the carnelian stone. 
---Most of the gold gilt is gone. Just slightly tinted gold now.
