A rare, yet charming piece of history this ring is! The top of ring opens up to reveal a secret compartment, and to be candid, these locket rings did not always carry poison as the name suggests, sometimes they held tiny portraits, notes or mementoes of loved ones. Nonetheless, it's hard not to be intrigued by the history of these small 'poison' memorial locket rings.

This particular ring bears the hand engraved ladies name 'Bertha' - a name popularized in the 19ct century. The minuscule hinged compartment works well and the hollow construction endures not one dent over the 130+ years. Decorative swirl and shell clam shoulders give extra charm and style to the antique treasure!

Victorian, around c1870's- 80's
