Post Medieval Amor Vincit Posy Ring

The Latin phraseAmor Vincit Omnia’ first appeared in the Eclogues of Virgil (X, 69) in the first century BCE, and has subsequently been adopted as a common motto in the English language. It means "love conquers all". This is a VERY old ring, and before you get too excited about the amazing condition it's in, we have to disclose that the black enamel has been touched up, but not by us. I would rather have found it marked by age, with only traces of the original enamel left, maybe, if any survived at all. But someone decided to restore it back to how it originally would have looked. The upside - many years (centuries?) of are life left in it.
