Antique Etruscan Revival Diamond Poison Ring

A brilliant and unique Etruscan Revival poison ring from the Victorian era. Made of 18 karat yellow gold with a prominent and stately design, featuring detailed beading and granulation, including an ingenious disguised vessel. Centered by a gleaming half carat authentic old European diamond, doubling as the door to the hidden compartment. A stunning statement piece and a dream come true for any antique jewelry lovers or history buffs. Truly a ring to die for.

The origin of poison rings dates back to ancient times. They could be used to hold poison or another substance and 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 preclude capture or torture.
