French: For Love So Sweet Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconium Ring
A faithful recreation of a ring that was excavated from the River Thames, inscribed in French: Pour amour say douc.
- Hand-set with cubic zirconium in a heart shape
This ring is a replica of a handmade ring now in the Museum of London that dates to the mid-15th century. The original ring was made of gold, and inscribed in relief around the outside of the band in the period French spelling of the time. It was bezel set with a heart-shaped red spinel in four claws. Our adaptation has cubic zirconium in place of the spinel. The sentiment, 'for love so sweet', touches us today as it must have touched the owner of the original when she received it. This sterling silver ring or gold ring is perfect for weddings or anniversaries.
Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
