Glorious Purple Velvet Multi-Ring Box Circa 1910
Antique jewellery gift boxes are in an entire league of their own. Rich in both charm and enchantment, antique jewellery boxes are beautiful collectable pieces that many antique aficionados love to have and to hold their jewels inside.
Throughout history, antique jewellery boxes were created to be as rich and detailed as the jewellery themselves, whether a heart-shaped leather piece or a tortoiseshell case, when an antique jewel comes complete with its original box, it is a signifier of where this piece was made and also, potentially, by whom - a greater hallmark of prestigious craftsmanship.
A personal favorite from Elle's collection, this outstanding box is in wonderful shape with a coveted 12 slot interior. Wear to the outside but near mint inside.
