Mysterious stories lie behind “poison pill” pendants and rings – with a hidden compartment in the bezel, they were thought to have become famous during sixteenth century Europe to allow the owner to hide poison to slip into his/her enemies food or drink…a more common and thankfully harmless modern use is to allow its wearer to carry perfume, tiny portraits of loved ones, or other keepsakes. This intricately designed piece is adorned with ornate sterling silver filigree design and aquamarine and peridot gemstones. Would make a very special and unique gift.
