18C123 - The Poison Ring

18C123 - The Poison Ring

As most know, poison rings have a type of container usually hidden under a bezel or a gemstone. This container could actually be used to hold poison or another substance. Such discreet – not to mention fashionable – means of hiding such fatal liquids has inspired countless stories of assassins and jealous spouses having the ultimate revenge.

But the secret of poison rings is that it has never really been documented to be used to actually poison people. These rings came from India and the Far East by way of the Holy Relic trade in the Middle ages. And really, the containers were used as containers. People treated them as lockets – used to hold either a lock of hair or a hand painted picture of their lover or some other loved one. In a time when robbery was prevalent, these rings provided the ultimate safe for your cherished keepsakes.

Learn to make one of these fabulous rings and see what kind of uses you can find for it... whether nefarious or benign!
