Georgian Heart Locket Ring

$3,200

There's a beautifully preserved lock of hair underneath the glass in this phenomenal heart-shaped locket ring, but don't let your thoughts go to the macabre. This was a token of love/affection from J&A FP to W.P. in the year 1828. The ring features elaborate repoussé work along its shoulders and locket face (see the tiny shell at the center?). Near immaculate antique condition.
