Put a ring on it!

Put these two ladies on the website this afternoon.  I think they look good looking at one another.
Black Cameo $235 (late 1800s)

Late 1800s Poison RingI’ve never found one of these before.  Usually what people call poison rings are mourning rings, with a compartment for holding a lock of hair.  But this one seems truly sinister.  The compartment is concealed behind the face of the ring, and pops open by depressing one side of the door.  Add the religious imagery on the face, and the whole thing feels downright occult.

Ancient Egyptian Faience in Victorian Ring Mount.  I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some Egyptian faience for a while now.  This is the oldest thing we have now— by at least a couple thousand years.  (sold)
