GOOD: This Victorian purple velvet ring box is in great condition in keeping with its age and use. As can be expected from antique textiles that are over 100 years old, the outer velvet lining has significant wear. That being said, the interior still retains all of its original charm, with the stamped ink inscription clear and easy to read, giving us a rare glimpse into the past. The box itself secures tight, so it will preserve your antique and vintage rings for many more years.
