Birthstone poison rings will be an unique part of your jewelry wardrobe!
What is a poison ring?
And why would you want a special birthstone poison ring?
Rings with secret compartments have been made for thousands of years. Some of the earliest were from the Greeks.
Poison rings are part of a class of keepsake jewelry such as lockets. They are very special , whether they keep pills, smelling salts, lockets – or even poison.
It is rumored that the lovely Lucrezia Borgia used poison rings to kill her victims. Other people think you that she just got a bad rap. There really is not a lot of information about if Lucrezia used the poison ring or not, although the Borgia family had a bad habit of poisoning.
What do you think?
Of course some people would keep poison in their rings for themselves on really bad days! DON’T DO THAT! Talk to me about getting through those really bad days – you don’t need to resort to the poison ring. 😉

Here are some other modern day uses for poison rings:
- Carry a nitro pill if the ticker is giving you problems – (the cardiac nurse in me thought of that)
- Carry a love note
- A perfect place for a breath mint if you are going to get kissed!
- Carry some glitter if you want to sprinkle your fairy dust here and there.
March Birthstone Jewelry Poison Rings: Aquamarine
April Birthstone Poison Rings: Diamond
Diamond is the “Queen of Gems” , and this April birthstone poison ring jewelry is memorable indeed.
I especially loved the amazing Georgian ring from eBay. With the skull center, there is little doubt that the ring may have had a nefarious purpose. But the ring of diamonds sure makes it beautiful!

Secret compartment ring found
Unfortunately no gold treasure or bones of the ancestors. Sorry guys.
Of course not all secret compartment rings held poison.
Some secret compartment rings hold pills or smelling salts, as well as beautiful pictures in the lockets. Such is the case with the beautiful locket ring of Elizabeth the First and Anne Boleyn.

December Birthstone Poison Ring: the Turquoise, the Tanzanite
Turquoise is the main birthstone of December. This lovely blue-green stone has been used in jewelry from the Navajo to the Egyptians.
Beautiful blue tanzanite is the newest birthstone. It was only discovered by the Masai people in Africa in this century!
These poison rings will be an asset to any person born in December.

Claddagh Poison Pill Ring
This claddagh ring does not have a birthstone in it. But I included it because I love claddagh rings so much!
Claddagh rings are based on an Irish tale. The hand represented true bonding of friendship, the crown represented loyalty and the heart represents the heart you are pledging to your lover.
I also included this ring because it shows so perfectly what a poison ring (or keepsake ring) really is. The secret compartment is perfect for including whatever you desire.
I have found many claddagh rings with birthstones that I am sure you would enjoy.

I first learned of poison box rings when I read a little article by a fellow blogger Joan Adams: Silver Poison Rings
I decided to try to find poison rings in birthstones of every month of the year.
I think I have found some special birthstone poison rings and necklaces and I hope you agree.
