18ct yellow gold cabochon amethyst poison ring
The history of poison rings goes back as far as Roman times and were allegedly used for poison to be secretly carried in a ring that was used to poison someone or even used to commit suicide when imminent capture was upon them. Also found in rings from the 16th and 17th Century, antique poison rings are as rare as they are incredible to learn about.
