A pretty vintage ring with a secret. Fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1988 this is a vintage piece with an old soul. The head of the ring is a beautiful moval shape, studded with rose cut diamonds around a ruby cross in the centre made of baguette cut stones. The natural gemstones have some surface wear with chips to one diamond and ruby, only visible with magnification.
To the reverse we find a cleverly engineered locket back, which can be carefully prized away to reveal a secret compartment within the ring. Beautifully crafted the back of the ring curves around your finger for maximum comfort, sitting perfectly flush with the head of the ring. The back is loose and does fall away from the ring with relative ease, not an issue when being worn but something to bear in mind when you take the piece off. Otherwise this a fabulous and unique ring that will be incredibly loved in any collection.

We do not offer refunds on altered pieces, so please make sure you love your new piece before you purchase.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
