Designed as a seven-stone French-cut diamond ring typical of the Georgian period, within a blackened or oxidized platinum topped 18K gold mounting. The interior of the band is engraved with the Latin inscription AMOR VINSIT OMNIAE(sic), Love Conquers All.
The inscription is inspired by English posy rings. Check out my renaissance ring, which is inscribed 'Trew Love'. The spelling of vincit is wrong, but the spelling mistakes are charming. It's an indication of not just how rare and elusive literacy was centuries ago, but also illustrates how language is in constant flux. Who decides what is the 'correct' spelling? [The librarian in me is screaming.]
Materials: 18K yellow gold & oxidized platinum
Stones: 7 French-cut diamonds weighing approximately 1.72 cts. total weight.
Weight: 7.3 grams

**This ring design would make a beautiful engagement ring. Perhaps with the posy 'In my choyce I do rejoyce.'?
