To Be Rather Than To Seem Poesy Ring

$169.00 CAD

Meaning

This ring reads ‘Esse Quam Videri’ in Latin, meaning ‘To Be Rather Than to Seem’. It is a reminder of the beauty and power of being true to oneself.

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.

Additional ring sizes are available upon request.
