Courage to Challenge Life Poesy Ring, sterling silver, size 5

Regular price $169.00

Artist: Pyrrha

This ring reads ‘Fortem Posce Animum’ in Latin, meaning ‘Courage to Challenge Life.’ It is a reminder of the spirit’s capacity to triumph over adversity.

The original, 17th-century versions of poesy rings (sometimes spelled posey, or posie) were inscribed with tiny love poems, and popularly exchanged between lovers. The name was derived from the French word poésie, meaning poem.

Pyrrha talismans are cast using authentic wax seals and imagery from the Victorian era.

With symbolic meaning culled from heraldry each piece is designed to inspire the wearer.

Handcrafted in Vancouver, Canada.

Band width measures 3.5mm. Size 5.
