Georgian “Toujours Chere” Locket Ring
Sold!

A SENTIMENTAL (and extraordinarily covetable) Georgian ring modeled in gold with an octagonal face featuring the words "Toujours Chere" in enamel with a lustrous seed pearl frame. And it gets better! The face of the ring opens to reveal a concealed locket. It almost certainly originally housed a lock of hair but came to us empty.
