Borgia Pomander Poison Locket on Chain - Elizabethan Renaissance - Victorian


Name your poison! This necklace features a circular 3/4" pendant with red glass stones. The pendant opens in a locket style and is hand enameled in rich red hue. The chain measures 34" and is polished in gleaming gold tone.

Reminiscence of the poison rings when no one nobility was safe during the Renaissance! Add crushed Alka Selzer or fizzy candy to dump into someones drink so they know they have been "poisoned"... OR... add stick cinnamon, clove buds or other fragrant herbs for an instant pomander. Keep those vile airs away!

Hang it from your neck or wear on your belt. The chain measures 24" and the pendant basket measures 1" W x 1.25" H.
