An unusual French 18ct gold ring that was made circa 1800-1820. It has repoussé work featuring roses, leaves and fruit around the band. Repoussé refers to a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Within is a secret compartment that hinges open to reveal a compartment which may have held a lock of hair. A lovely rare ring in great condition.
Rare and as wearable now as it was in the Georgian period
