Gold finger ring. Cast D-section plain band with a legend neatly inscribed on its inner side in an angled script resembling a longhand script of the later 18th or early 19th century.

A complete gold 'posy' or poem finger ring of post-medieval date. The finger ring has a D-shaped cross section and a plain outer band. Internally is an inscritpion in cursive script which reads 'Let Love Ind'ure' (SIC). There is no maker's mark and due to this fact it is not possible to confirm that this ring is more than 300 years old, as finger rings with similar cursive script are dated from c. 1650 - 1750 AD. The legend 'Let Love Indure' could not be immediately paralleled however a similar legend reading 'As gold is pure let love indure' is recorded in Humphreys (1902) A Garland …
