Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1800

This Georgian half hoop ring is furnished with a double row of old mine cut diamonds in silver cut down settings. The ring hides a rather exciting secret: the inner band, at the back, contains a hidden hinged compartment that can be opened to reveal a concealed lock of hair. It features interesting and unusual shoulder detailing, reminiscent of lobster shell. It's modelled in 15 karat gold, and dates from the early 19th Century, circa 1800.
