The original gold poesy ring from which this piece was modeled is now in the collection of the British Museum. This ring is a flat hoop engraved in period French, then antiqued to reflect the original piece. Between the words are engraved flowers with seemingly happy, radiant suns. There is no direct translation into contemporary English, but the poesy 'en bien emer' can be interpreted as meaning: 'to guard', or, 'to encircle with love', a beautiful thought for anyone in love. A French influenced ring for personal use or to celebrate matrimony.
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.
