With the spooky season upon us, it's a great time to explore the supposed deadly content that locket rings were once used for, disguised by captivating jewels. During the Middle Ages, locket rings were often used to hide relics of saints, like bits of their hair, bone, and teeth, which were thought to protect the wearer from various calamities and maladies.

Stunning, this spot-on 1830-1840 transitional pearl flower ring is the boldest treat in your collection. Featuring five wildly saturated emeralds, this ring is a museum-quality example of this special genre of jewel that no ring stack collection is complete without.
