Ana de Mendoza y de la Cerda was an outrageously wealthy Spanish aristocrat, born on 29 June 1540. She was considered one of the greatest beauties of her day in Europe, even though she lost an eye in a sword fight with one of her father's young pages. Perhaps the eyepatch made her more intriguing. She married at the age of 12 to Ruy Gómez de Silva, Prince of Eboli.

The secrets of this beautiful locket ring were not discovered until it was removed from Elizabeth I’s finger after she died in 1603. The mother-of-pearl ring with rubies in the band and diamonds on the facade was hiding two miniature enamel portraits, one of Elizabeth herself and the other believed to be her mother, Anne Boleyn, who was beheaded when Elizabeth was just two years old.
