Latin: Equality Of Rights

The concept of equality of rights we tend to think of as a modern idea, whatever the particular struggle being pursued. However, the battle to establish freedoms, rights and equality is as ancient as civilization itself. The Latin word ‘aequalitas’ was a rallying call in ancient Rome; in French, 'egalite' was one of the cries of the Revolution; in English, equality was a central tenet of the American Declaration of Independence. There are  many words for equality in Latin, with differing shades of meaning. ‘Aequalitas’ specifically refers to equality of rights. This bold modern ring has been engraved with a very classical concept.

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 a jewelry bag will help prevent tarnishing.

Poesy rings are rings engraved with a brief poem or phrase of love. These rings have a long history. 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 OtherAll I Refuse and Thee I ChuseYours OnliI Am My Beloved's... you choose.
