Poison rings and lockets were developed in Europe during the 1700s as a way to either surreptitiously do in your enemy or commit suicide to prevent yourself from falling into the hands of your enemy.

This capsule-shaped locket is not only handsome but has several features that make it special:

The bottom holds a small rainbow moonstone gemstone, which is called a 'cabochon'. A cabochon is a stone that is shaped and polished, usually round, according to a technique that was common before faceting – or cutting – was developed. So this is a throwback to the time of the poison lockets' origin.

Another feature is the cover, which is slotted to fit a small key mounted on the brim of the locket. This keeps the locket securely closed, so that whatever treasure you put inside – dried herbs, a scroll, ashes, a photo – will be safe. But be careful to always twist the cover before opening the locket; otherwise you risk damaging it.

You can also see from the photos how decorative this locket is: Almost every surface holds some embellishment, including the top of the cover and the bottom surrounding the moonstone. Small filigree scrolls and granulation (decoration with tiny spheres) give it an exquisitely detailed look. Featured are two pentacles, one on either side. All the detailing is raised against a recessed background that has been darkened with an oxidizing technique.

The inner compartment extends to the bottom of the locket.

We wanted to give our customers a way of personalizing their pendants, but many of the pieces in our store are textured on the backside, have an uneven surface, or a design on all sides, making it impossible to engrave them.

Our solution to this problem was to offer engravable charms that you can add onto any necklace. They are small, about 1/2" wide (12 mm) and come with free engraving on the front side (backside engraving is available for an additional charge).

We currently only have these in two shapes (a heart or circle), but will be adding more as time goes on. The charms are also engraved in-house and custom fit with findings to match your pendant.

You can choose engravable charm options right on the product page of any pendant. Below are a few photographs of charms we've made for customers in the past, along with their pendants.
