    1. Cheers Timothy! I had the Borgia’s in mind but I dare say there were plenty of poisonous machinations in medieval power politics too! Glad you like the pics! 🙂

  6. The Poison Ring sounds like the title of a novel set in Italy and Spain during the Renaissance period (mmm getting my thinking cap on!) Love the image 🙂

    Can’t decide which I like best…perhaps the first for a sense of mystery

    1. Hi Sue – yes I think I like the one with the overturned goblet best – gives a more murderous feel to it!! 😀 😀 😀

  8. I hope you’re writing the story to accompany these fabulous images! Talking of the Borgias, when I was having a particularly tough time in the ’90s, a friend said he reckoned I must have been Lucrezia in a past life to have reaped so much shit. 🙂

    1. HaHa! But you’re such a sweet person Sarah o_O aren’t you? 😦 !! Not sure if you’ve read it but one of my favourite books of last year was Blood and Beauty by Sarah Dunant a really brilliant novel portraying the family and early life of Lucrezia – do look for it if you don’t know it!

      1. Ah, but I can be the bitch from hell if provoked! I haven’t read the book but the whole series sounds right up my street.

      2. I shall remember to try never to say anything to annoy you Sarah! Enjoy the book if you do get it and have a lovely weekend – hope it’s more springlike there than it is here! 🙂

      3. Then again, I might feel a bit disloyal to the friend of mine who’s married to her ex-husband!

    Reading the comments I see that there isn’t a specific history behind the ring, just an inference and nod to the Borgias…or IS there a history behind the ring?

    1. Hi Grace! No actually there isn’t really, it’s just an intriguing ring from my boutique actually! It just suggested a lot of potential stories! Have a great weekend! 🙂
