<p>A sterling silver ring with the Latin inscription <span style="font-style: italic;">amor vincit omnia</span>: 'love conquers all'. <br /> <br /> The Latin phrase <span style="font-style: italic;">amor vincit omnia</span> translates as 'love conquers all', a motto known to all students of English literature as the one engraved on the brooch worn by the Prioress in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. <br /> <br />This ring is inspired by a <a class="linkarrow" title="Read more about the original" href="http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_onlin e/collection_object_details.aspx?objectId=78818&amp;partId=1" target="_blank"> <span class="arrow">gold posy ring</span> </a>, dating to the late 16th or early 17th centuries, that is now in the collection of the British Museum. <br /> <br />Inscribed rings are found as early as classical times when the inscriptions were usually dedicatory. Posy rings reached their greatest popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries in England and France when they were used as a lover's token, a wedding ring or simply as a means of showing regard or giving a gift. The inscription was usually on the inside of the ring, making them private in message and meaning. Their popularity in Elizabethan England is attested to by their frequent mention in Shakespeare's plays. <br /> <br /> <a class="linkarrow" title="Posy rings" href="http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_onlin e/search.aspx?searchText=posy+ring" target="_blank"> <span class="arrow">See all posy rings in the British Museum's collection.</span></a></p>

A sterling silver ring inscribed with the Latin words: amor vincit omnia.

This enchanting ring fits a size 8/P.

Translating to ‘Love conquers all’, the design of the ring has taken inspiration from a gold ‘posy’ ring which dates to the late 16th or early 17th century, which is housed in the British Museum’s collection. Inscribed posy rings were popular in the 16th century in England and France, and were often used as a gift for a lover or as a wedding band.

The motto amor vincit omnia will be well known to literature students as the one engraved in the brooch worn by the Prioress in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

A beautiful gift perfect for Valentine’s Day or special anniversaries.
