    "Sterling" probably isn't a name, it's more likely an identifier for the quality of the silver the ring is made of. So real silver, not a cheap knockoff.

    I'm thinking (more like hoping) that she should have fingerprints if they are able to discern eye color?

    I think the "sterling" ring might possibly be missing a piece. It looks like a cameo ring. Something maybe similar to this. (Hopefully this link posts, I don't know how to add pics to a post)

    Does anyone know why they wouldn't be able to determine age, not even from the teeth?

    Yeah, or it could have had a stone in it. I have a very similar ring with a malachite cabachon; other popular stones at the time were turquoise, coral, and mother of pearl.

    The photo posted just fine, btw.

    Sterling silver is 92.5% silver. In the UK it's usually shown as .925 stamped on jewellery.

    Others I remember being popular in the late 1970s and 1980s were sodalite (blue, poor man's lapis lazuli), aventurine, amethyst, rose quartz, haematite and tiger's eye - all were cut as cabochons.

    The spoon ring was very popular between 76 to around 78. IMO

    I had to look up "spoon ring". I don't think I've ever seen them in the UK so maybe they're a US thing.

    O ya, spoon rings were really big here in the 70s. We all got them one year for Christmas.

    Turquoise was really popular here in the 70s as well.

    Carbuff, do you know the area in which these remains were found at all? Do you know what's there for businesses or parks & stuff like that? I looked up the Neponset Marsh on Google Maps but only found the river and the street she was found near.

    Is there an estimated time of death? I'm new to this and still am unaware how long it would take to get to various degrees of decomposition.

    Decomp varies by many factors, like climate & weather conditions, and whether or not the person was found on land or in water.
    There's no time of death listed, but if they were able to discern eye color, it had to be within weeks, if not days.

    Since we don't know the age or actual time of death, there's really no "too far back" :winko:
    She may have been a run away from years or decades before.

    The river is the marsh--it's a tidal estuary. Most of the bodies found in it are dropped off the bridge, but it sounds like she was buried. It's always been popular with organized crime groups. In 1982 and earlier, the Winter Hill gang (Whitey Bulger) disposed of many of their victims there, but she doesn't match any of the known victims.
