Love Conquers All Cuff Bracelet
This sterling silver cuff bracelet is adapted from a ring now in the collection of the British Museum and is engraved with the Latin “Amor vincit omnia” (“love conquers all”) in period script. The full quote from the Roman poet Virgil's Eclogues X, 69 dated to 38 BCE is “omnia vincit amor et nos cedamus amori” (“love conquers all; let us too, yield to love!”), a passionate declaration that speaks to us across the centuries.
According to the Webster-Merriman Dictionary, A character in Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales wore a brooch engraved with "Amor Vincit Omnia" and a number of poets, including W. H. Auden, have used this phrase in their works.
1/4" wide with an inside width of 2-1/4".
