What could be more romantic than this sweet vintage silver ring that reads 'Omnia vincit amor', Latin for 'Love conquers all'!? We think it would make such a lovely wedding ring or perhaps even an alternative engagement ring too!
The ring is likely styled on an antique posy ring (also known as poesie, posie, and posey). Posy is derived from the French term 'poésie' meaning poetry or poem and so posy rings are inscribed with poetic messages, usually romantic, and were worn as wedding rings. Sometimes the words were engraved to the outside but sometimes they were engraved to the inside too, so only the person wearing the ring and the person who gave it to them know what it says - so romantic!
The ring is made of sterling silver, marked 'SILVER' inside the shank, weighs approx 3.6g and measures approx 5.9mm wide
Ring size - approx a US 7 / approx a UK O
Condition - The ring is in good wearable vintage condition but does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the silver throughout. The ring is slightly oval in shape, we think likely from wear over time although it could possibly have been made this way originally. Please see photos.
*Please note the antique box pictured is not included in the sale but the ring will be shipped in a new presentation ring box and pouch*
