Could it be a ring used with molten wax to seal correspondence?
once you make a positive impression with Playdoh, you may see a personal / work / city / county crest

Best I can tell is that might have been from a count or vicout, but the shape of the crown is rather ususal.
You might have a good chance with the online services offering to identify a family crest, but they not free.
Sorry.

Can you use some wax, playdoh or modeling clay to make a positive?
It is very hard to see the details on te ring.

Hi, the stone looks like carved bloodstone. To find out more information, I would look inside the ring. It probably has two stamp marks. One will read 925 or sterling, ss,or another abbreviation for sterling. The other stamp may lead you to find the information you need. this mark is the maker's hallmark. In some countries you need to register your hallmark. I don't know about Poland. If you can identify the hallmark you can learn more about the ring and its maker and its history.
