As you may already know, poison rings have a type of container that is typically hidden under a gemstone or bezel. As the name suggests, poison rings have been used in the past to hold poison or other lethal substance. Such discreet means of hiding such deadly stuff has inspired numerous stories of jealous spouses and assassins having the ultimate revenge.
Ancient Romans sometimes used these types of rings to commit suicide in order to avoid painful death by sentence. There are some documented cases of Roman government officials escaping torture by taking a bite out of their poison ring. All in all, poison rings have been widely used for such purposes. However, the times have changed. Nowadays, poison rings are more of a symbol of elegance and fashion and their secret containers serve a variety of purposes.
Following are some modern uses for poison rings:
CBD Capsule Container
Most poison rings have a secret compartment big enough to hold/store a 200-miligram CBD capsule. If you have such a poison ring, then you can use it as a portable CBD capsule container and easily take your dose of CBD with you virtually anywhere.
Solid Perfume Storage
Poison rings are also a great way to store a limited amount of solid perfume. In fact, this practice was used in the past where people kept small capsules of fragrance inside their poison rings to disguise the atrocious odors of rank gutters and streets.
Single M&M Holder
M&Ms are bright, colorful chocolates made in the shape of buttons, each of which features the letter ‘m’ printed on one side. You can store a single M&M in your poison ring so you can always have a piece whenever you crave for something sweet and delicious.
Secret Note Carrier
Information such as codes and passwords are something that you want to remember but also keep away from prying eyes. Your poison ring can serve you as a secret note container to hold such valuable information.
Confetti are small streamers or pieces of paper, metallic, or mylar material that are typically thrown at celebrations, particularly weddings and parades. Since confetti are so small, you can store a certain amount of them in your poison ring.
A Real Modern Poison Ring
In the past, poison rings were used to hold memento of loved ones and this practice is still very common. You can keep a picture of your loved one in the ring and take it with you anywhere. All you will need to make sure is that the photo has the same dimensions as the storage space of the secret compartment of your ring.
In conclusion, while poison rings are commonly known to have been used to murder kings or committing suicide, such uses no longer exist. Today, the secret containers of these rings are really used as containers. Some people in the past used to treat these containers as lockets for holding either a picture of a loved one or a lock of hair. The modern-day uses are not so different but they are surely more diverse.
