A wonderfully mysterious, gold poison signet ring, dating to the late Victorian era. Although it looks like a simple gold signet ring, the front panel actually opens to reveal a secret compartment and a hollow inner, in which to conceal poison. It is said that the wearer could conceal liquid or powder in the ring, and with a simple tip of the hand they could deposit poison into the drink of an enemy, or use it to facilitate suicide in the event of capture.

DIMENSIONS: The ring is 1cm tall at the widest point. The opening is 9mm x 9mm. Weight: 2.8g.

FINGER SIZE: UK: U 1/2, USA: 10.5

ERA / HALLMARKS: Unmarked - believed to be late Victorian era (c.1890 1900). Tests as 15ct gold.

CONDITION: Very good used condition
