Do you know what a poison ring is, my darlings? They’re one of my very favorite unusual forms of jewelry: a ring with a hidden, hinged compartment that can hold small items like poison. Poison rings are so romantic and mysterious.
Most of the poison rings I’ve come across have been antique or vintage, but this modern poison ring by Harwell Godfrey is oh-so-dreamy.
Isn’t it a beauty?
It’s inlaid with mother of pearl, white onyx, and lilac enamel with a large and lovely central pearl. That color scheme is so dreamy that I can barely stand it. So delicate and romantic and subtle, with just enough color and texture variation to be as irresistible as it is elegant.
The Harwell Godfrey poison ring does not contain poison – it contains solid perfume, a custom Harwell Godfrey blend.
A perfume insert is both more useful and less felonious than poison, but I’m sure you could replace it with poison if you really needed a poison ring that could be used for its traditional purpose (I don’t know your life).
I haven’t smelled the perfume, but the blend does sound lovely.
Here are a few of Harwell Godfrey’s other rings!
This designer is very new to me but I’m loving what I’ve seen from her so far. There’s a beautiful inlaid locket that comes with the perfume insert, in case the ring isn’t your cup of tea, and I love the necklaces with this design, too! Especially this custom one.
What do you think, darlings? Do you like the poison ring’s gentle color scheme or would you choose one of the other, more vivid Harwell Godfrey rings? I have a weakness for the one on the right above, with the opal, blue enamel, and pink topaz color combo.
