Pictured here is the famous Death Band, given to the wife of Mr. Corfinn Carrow, the lady Euryale Carrow (nee Plum.) The death band was a cursed ring, which would cause the wearer to literally rot. The ring could not be removed until the wearer was dead. The band was given to Mrs. Carrow on Christmas, 1786, by an unknown person.
To this day, many suspect that Mr. Mance Lestrange, the lord of the family at the time, hired an agent to give the cursed ring to the lady Carrow, in order for his daughter, Wilhelma to take over as the wife of Corfinn.
