I thought this looked more like 1920s. It's a lovely photo.

why don't you post the original un-restored version and let the Rootschatters loose on it. It's a beautiful picture which I'm sure could be '  improved ' , cheers, Ian

I'm not sure if she has a ring on her exposed finger* and, if she does, it could be that the photo is the wrong way around. She is certainly making her hand prominent. An unrestored version might help with discovering that.

* the position of the knuckle looks all wrong.

It does look like she is wearing a ring, could it be a 21st Birthday photo I wonder.
