French: No One But You Sterling Silver Ring - Inspirational Jewelry
This ring is a faithful adaptation of a 15th century narrow gold poesy ring, now in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. It is engraved in period French in a blackletter Gothic script, typical of the period and decorated with sprays of flowers. Norman French remained the language of the English nobility until the late medieval period, and the ring itself was probably made in England although the poesy inscription is in French. The appealing sentiment speaks to us today across many centuries.
Inscribed in French: Autre ne veuil, meaning 'no one but you'. Sterling Silver
