"Data Fata Secutus"Signet Ringwith Concealed Jewelry Box Key

This incredible, and very very rare Victorian piece holds a key that discreetly tucks into the head of the ring. The key would have opened a small box used to hold jewelry, money, or other valuables. The face of the ring features a heraldic antelope encircled by a garter and the motto "Data Fata Secutas" or "Following what is decreed by fate".
