A ring with a secret compartment which could be used to hold poison became popular in Europe during the sixteenth century. These poison rings were used to slip poison into an enemy's food or drink, or to facilitate the suicide of the wearer in the case of capture.
The rings were so popular that to this day in Italy, pouring a drink from a bottle with the back of the hand facing downwards - which would allow something to drop from a ring bezel - is called versare alla traditora, or “traitor’s way pouring”. And it is still considered offensive.
Later, such rings were used for more benign purposes - to carry perfume, locks of hair, relics or other keepsakes of loved ones.
Evoke the feel of a medieval assassin, or carry a loved one's keepsake in this ring with a secret compartment!
Featuring a detailed lion's head in front, this ring is excellent for use with everyday outfits while still preserving your secrets in full view.
I love rings with little secrets, this is a wonderful addition to my collect.
I very much enjoy this unique ring.
I love the ring but the Lion head is too small doesn't have the impact it should. I'm a lover of unique jewelry, this is almost there but does miss the mark a bit.
Love my new ring! It looks super cool, came in the right size, and Wyverns Hoard knocked it outta the ballpark with their great packaging and super fast shipping! Love all their killer products, and will definitely be ordering from them again! Thanks a ton to all who were involved in my order! Keep kicking butt! I wish y’all well!
