Can two keep a secret? Certainly, if one of them is dead or one of them is your fancy jewellery!
Jewellery pieces with secret were especially popular in the Middle Ages. The most commonly found were massive rings with boxes hidden inside. Usually such items contained poison powder so people were often afraid of the owner of such jewellery piece. It was a time of cruel intension.
In 16 century such rings were forbidden to wear and lockets replaced them. Lockets were admired by all ladies as they got a chance to hide a name of secret lover or his lock of hair inside a pendant.
But such accessories with secrets quickly lost their popularity as they were more than jewellery, but complex engineering masterpieces. They often contained a lock and a key to avoid accidental opening, besides small size of the item made it difficult to craft technically. So the high price of the jewellery discouraged people to order lockets and poison rings.
But eventually the interest in secret jewellery was rekindled and now more and more fashionistas are spotted on the streets of London wearing this brand new old trend. Take a look at my favorites!
The more extravagant brooch is, the better effect it will provoke.
Fancy rings with black gems, pink quartz crystal, labradorite, mother of pearl and other precious stones always look great. But these ones are even better and more unique as their design provides a possibility of secret message to be engraved on the back. It could be initials, name or date. You will look glamorous and mysterious with such ring on your hand, as only you know what it conceals.
