18K French Victorian Onyx Black Enamel Monogram AB/BA Ring with Secret Hidden Compartment
A stunning French Victorian c.1880 onyx signet ring with monogram "AB/BA", with a secret hidden compartment on reverse, crafted in 18k gold. It is hallmarked with the French eagle head for 18k gold.
The ring has beautiful and strong shoulders, with black enamel accents.
The hidden compartment has a special original 'needle hole' opening, which is an ingenious way to fit a hidden compartment seamlessly into a ring without needing an external latch or handle.
