German Souvenir PARIS Ring

Hello All,
this is the second of two rings that I came by this weekend.

The blue enamel front is still in quite tidy condition and has the simple face with the wording:
PARIS 14 VI 1940….The date of German entry in to Paris.

There is a small .925 hallmark and makers logo …I think it says RI?

So it is my belief that this was made locally in France and sold as a souvenir.
I may be wrong but German silver standards were 800, 900 and 999. I may be wrong.

Both shoulders are decorated with an oak leaf cluster.

Observations or opinions welcomed
