Description

“Vous Et Nul Autre” Silver Ring

Inscribed in French, “Vous et Nul Autre” (“You and No Other”), this simple, yet elegant sterling silver ring was inspired by an original from the 15th century, now in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The letters, engraved in a Gothic script, are surrounded by floral patterns and other intricate designs.

Though the actual betrothal ring was most likely made in England, the wording was engraved in French, as it remained the language of the English nobility until the late 1400s.

Given as a declaration of one’s love or chosen for it’s beauty and historical interest, this special piece is sure to be treasured over time.

Material: sterling silver
