An enchanting 14ct gold ring with an owl above a book and a date of 1928. There are also three initials HMS across the owl’s body. The original insignia of the Illuminati (a secret society similar to the Freemasons) was the Owl of Minerva perched on top of a book. The Roman goddess Minerva along with her Greek counterpart Athena were the goddesses of wisdom. So the owl with it’s ability to see in the dark together with the book, are strong symbols of the wisdom, knowledge, insight, and learning that the Illuminati were all about.
