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.
14k gold (tests), enamel, seed pearls
Very good - has been previously resized
8.75, can be resized; 5/8" head, 1.5mm at the narrowest part of the shank
