This ring reads 'Dum Spiro Spero' in Latin, which means 'While I Breathe I Hope'. It encourages us to remain hopeful, even in 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.

Additional ring sizes are available upon request.
