Hi Paul, they are actually a grey agate with a slight greenish tinge. The large one is 55mm high and has a 29mm inside diameter, the smaller braced one is 41mm high and has an ID of 15mm. Neither size are what the rod first had, but if you get stuck........

Thanks for the reply's with help chaps, it was looking like I was going to struggle with the correct pattern, but then I got a lucky break :Thumb:

Ironically browsing Ebay I noticed a lot of large chrome rings, and in the middle was the same pattern ring!
I send a message to the dealer to ask the size, it was bang on, and we agreed a very fair price of £8 incl postage :Wink:
