Someone in the swinging 1970's in London commissioned this ring in 18k gold. The tall head contains a secret door which opens to hide....what? The age of hair in jewelry was long over and there's no lens to showcase a photo. Once upon a time people called these "poison rings", although hiding poison in rings probably only occurred in movies and storybooks. On the front, the vibes are heraldic, but there's no mention of a greyhound / crosslet / tree in our family crest books.
