Something apropos of nothing :)

Last fall, not too long after my birthday, my mother in law offered me this ring.


That’s a real onyx.

I love silver and I like interesting rings, so of course I said ‘yes!’

The thing is, that this ring is what’s called a pillbox ring, or a poison ring, a piece of jewellery notoriously featured in period mystery stories.


I wondered whether she was trying to tell me something … ?
