Latin Carpe Diem Sterling Silver Poesy Ring

Quintus Horatius Flaccus, born in 65 BCE, better known as Horace, is among the greatest of the Roman poets. His quotation from The Odes, Book I.11 dum loquimur, fugerit invida aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula postero, or While we speak, time has been running, seize the day, and trust as little as you may for tomorrow, reaches across the centuries to inspire us today. The symbols and names of the days of the week are another reminder that time is passing day by day as engraved on this silver Latin designer ring.

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.






poesy
Poesy rings are rings engraved with a brief poem or phrase of love. Found as early as Greek and Roman times, they continued to be popular through the intervening centuries and are still chosen today as a band of love to represent the bond of love. Regardless of the century, language or culture, the desire to affirm our feelings for one another in a permanent way is universal. The Poesy collection, a celebration of love, has many poesys from which to choose and all are as meaningful today as when they first appeared:  You and No Other, All I Refuse and Thee I Chuse, Yours Onli, I Am My Beloved's... you choose. Great gifts for any occasion, wedding or Valentine's Day.
