    Hello, ARR0624!

    I'm familiar with the basic puzzle ring.

    You say this is not the "standard puzzle ring".
    . . If you're referring to one I know, I can't help you.
    And I'm not familiar with any variations.




    In the second picture, it certainly looks like the one I know.

    We hold two of the rings as shown in the photo.
    Then manuver the other two rings so they form a figure-8
    . . around the lower portion of the ring.
    Then we ease it into the upper assembly.


    An interesting bit of folklore about these puzzle rings . . .

    Legend has it that knights put these rings on their wives before leaving on a crusade.
    They became known as signs of marriage, and no man (so they say) would dare have
    . . an affair with the wife of a knight. .If an errant wife felt amorous, she'd have to
    . . remove the ring ... and, of course, would not be able to reassemble it.

    Heh, neat bit of info about the knights but yeah I can't find any where that has the solution to the ring I have. I am only to find the standard ring solution.
