An exquisite and rare Victorian ring with a hidden channel. Its secret is revealed by sliding the inconspicuous little gold knob to one side to reveal the plaited hair within. Note how the sliding panels are engraved with a crosshatched design that echoes the braid of the hair. Near immaculate and so special. British hallmarks.
