Story

Hand engraved, personalized and dated, this is a ring imbued with an aristocratic air.

Dating to 1852 from the early Victorian in date, this ring's top seal signet is carved in white agate chalcedony. In the intaglio, cut out beneath the surface, the initials CID are emblazoned in old English style of lettering but a mirror image. Once pressed into wax, the initials appear correctly.

Forming a hinged locket, the top pops up to reveal a hidden compartment with a diminutive glass covered oval locket within. The substantial 14k gold ring's top half exterior has been hand engraved with six sided adjacent panels and decorative patterns.

Hand engraved to the interior is a touching reminder that this was a special gift. "C.I.D. to E.P. F. Jan y 1852"
