This vintage ring was crafted by Indian Silversmiths, in the early 1980's. It is crafted from solid, .925 Sterling Silver, and features a genuine, garnet center stone.
In classic poison jewelry tradition, there is a secret, hinged compartment beneath the stone. This compartment can be used to hold a countless array of items of your choosing. The hinge closes tightly and securely, but I would not recommended using the compartment for any liquids. Some suggestions include medication, a lock of hair, solid perfume, or a small picture. It is perfect for holding a flying ointment!!
This ring will come with your choice of a flying ointment; please include your choice of Ointment in the notes section, so I know which one to include.
I do not have any other size in this style, at the moment. If you are interested in a particular stone/style, in a particular size, shoot me a message!
