1) This is a lovely Art Deco ring in the style initiated (or at least made popular by) Raymond C. Yard at the very end of the 1920s. Yard was among the first - if not the first - to introduce the design with one important centre stone and simple shoulders using much smaller stones in a mix of step and brilliant cuts - usually single cuts on the rounds. See the 2008 book by Natascha Kuzmanovich, "Yard: The Life and Magnificent Jewelry of Raymond C . Yard". Are there any markings or writings on the shank? There is something visible in one of the pictures...

 

Even if it's not signed and/or not by Yard, I think you are doing yourself a disservice in describing this as a "5 stone ring". You've got heritage, (wo)man - flaunt it! ;) Kidding aside, if you have any proof - even anecdotal as "grandma's engagement ring" - that it does go back to the 1930s, it is definitely one of the early ones, Yard or not. It doesn't make it worth more, unfortunately, but it may make it easier to sell. 

 

2) Speaking of which, an indication of price would probably help too!

 

Good luck!
