early 20th century sapphire, pearl, and 8k gold poison ring


The Story

An antique poison ring made during the early 20th century from 8 karat rosy-yellow gold. Seen on its oval front are two stones, a pearl and sapphire, each measuring 2 mm round, set within chic engraving. It opens to reveal a teeny tiny compartment to hold anything of your choice. The center opening is set on an open detailed band complimenting the piece perfectly. 

Traditionally known as poison rings, we love them to hide anything from a tiny picture to a teeny treasure. An unusual piece, you don't see antique rings like this often.
