An unusual antique 9K gold signet ring with a photo locket top. This 9 K size 8-1/2 ring features a 5/8" x 1/2" top fashioned from an actual Victorian hinged photo locket which has been soldered shut and engraved with an ornate Gothic GWS monogram. It has Birmingham, England hallmarks for 1864 (no Queen's head). This ring bears an inscription on the interior under the top section of WITH FONDEST LOVE LIZZIE. It weighs 6.7 grams.
It is in excellent antique condition with no dents, bends, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than a gold solder line from an old re-sizing at one side. Expected patination / wear commensurate with it's age. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use as would be expected. Silver and silver plated items are hand-polished, not buffed, and our halogens and magnified images may exaggerate otherwise barely noticeable scratches and flaws.
GUARANTEE: ALL of our items are antique or vintage and from the period listed. NONE are reproductions or recreations.
