Secrets and mysteries never cease to fascinate us. This Victorian ring holds its own surprise with a top that appears solid but is in fact a lid that opens to reveal a compartment.
Created in 9k yellow gold, the antique ring is long and oval. Hand engraved, the lid's surface designs cover the top. Swirls and patterns seem as if in motion as if a gentle breeze is blowing through.
There is a compartment with a depth of about 2 mm which is revealed lifting the top from the side. Enough to hold tiny mementos, a lock of hair, or a photograph.
A reeded central shoulder and two arched side struts all merge into a sleek band.
It is a myth that seems to always circulate that locket rings were often for poison. Choose to believe what you will...
