Latin: Love Conquers All Sterling Silver Ring

Virgil: "Amor vincit omnia," inscribed in Latin.


Latin: Love Conquers All

The Latin phrase 'omni a vincit amor' translates as 'love conquers all' and is engraved on this ring, which is a replica of a handmade original ring in the British Museum. This model is engraved in a period script exactly as in the original. The full quote from the Roman poet Virgil's Eclogues X, 69 dated to 38 BCE is 'omnia vincit amor et nos cedars amori' or 'love conquers all; let us too, yield to love!' A passionate declaration that speaks to us across the centuries and is sure to inspire the adventurous.

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
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.
