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".
Hallmarked for 1876
7, can be resized for an additional fee of $90; 1.8cm head, 2.7mm hoop
