|Sterling Silver and Peridot
A poison ring is a type of ring with a container under
the bezel or inside the bezel itself that could be used to
hold poison or another substance. They became
popular in Europe during the sixteenth century. The
poison ring was used either to slip poison into an
enemy's food or drink, or to facilitate the suicide of the
wearer in order to escape capture or torture.
Rings like this have been used throughout history to
carry perfume, locks of hair, devotional relics,
messages and other keepsakes, so they have also
been known by other names. Artists would paint tiny
portraits of loved ones, to be carried in what was called
a “locket ring,” which was popular during the
Renaissance. By the 17th century, jewelers were
creating locket rings in the shape of caskets which
served as mementos for mourners. These were called
“funeral rings.” Rings with compartments are also called
“box” rings or “socket” rings.
