Description

This ring reads ‘Flecti Non Frangi’ in Latin, meaning ‘To Be Bent Not Broken.’ It refers to one who can endure hardship and not break.

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. 

Band width measures 3.5mm.

  • 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.
