Really unusual and unique ring in the shape of a band and depicting a buckle on the front and then the belt going all the way, hand engraved around the ring.
This ring is extremely old. It was made in the Georgian period c1770 to 1800 and it is set in eighteen-carat yellow gold.
The secret in the ring of course is that when you open the buckle, you can open the ring up completely, and inside it there are several rows of very finely platted human hair.
So this means that this piece is a mourning piece and the hair belonged to a beloved one who had passed.
