Many monogrammed pieces of jewelry were given as sentimental gifts, which often included a compartment for a loved one's photos or a locket of hair strands. Much Victorian Era jewelry with signature engravings and monogrammed initials was reserved for gold- and silver-plated items, like this gem, for example.
A very rare English mechanical letter ring, this functional treasure contains a compartment for your smallest secrets. Acid tested at over 18ct, this amazing jewel is one of those rare pieces a collector could wait on for years.
