Please help me get an idea how old this ring is, and what stone is in it.

Among my grandmother's things was an old silver ring with an opaque blue stone in it.
It's clearly hand-made, and has some sort of sizing apparatus on the back. I've never seen anything quite like it.
I know nothing about gemstones or minerals or jewelry, so can anyone give me even a vague idea of when this kind of ring was in fashion, and what "style" it is? And also, what is the blue stone in it?
