This is a nice Renaissance silver finger ring, dating to the 16th - 17th century A.D. The ring has a round flat bezel, engraved with a flowering heart, symbolic of blossoming love. 

This ring has survived in good antique condition, though the lower hoop has been cut in antiquity but is otherwise intact and wearable. It will be possible to have the hoop rejoined by a jeweller but is otherwise original.
