To Be Bent Not Broken Poesy Ring
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.
Please note that because this ring has a wide band, it will fit tighter and may require a larger size. If you do not have access to a wide band ring sizer, go up one half size.
Additional ring sizes are available upon request.
