It is a classic tale of intrigue, those olden times where monarchs constantly had to watch their backs just in case a family member betrayed him to take over the throne, and one of the most creative ways of deposing one in power would be through poisoning one’s food. However, sneaking in poison into the food is not all that easy, unless one could fashion a device that hides the poison which will be administered only after the food had gone through the food taster’s palate. The $1,100 Sterling Silver Engraved Topaz Locking Poison Ring with Key on Chain could have done the job just as well, where a large central topaz stone can be unlocked using the included key, revealing a small chamber that holds the poison of your choice. You can also wear the ring around your neck as a necklace if you so desire. There is another version that comes in solid 18 carat gold – although that would see it’s price balloon up to $4,500.
