This lovely 19th century French ring is so much more than meets the eye. The ring features a beveled glass panel offset by lovely geometric open work at the shoulders, but you have to turn it over over to reveal its secrets. The underside of the head is a hinged panel engraved "Mathilde a Marie 26 Mai 1880" which opens to reveal an empty compartment ready to hold a tiny keepsake. French hallmarks.
