This is a wonderful Georgian gold posy ring, dating to the 18th century. The inside of the band is inscribed "Let vertue be thy guide" (Let virtue be thy guide) a sentiment recorded in Evans (69). It bears a makers mark of 'J.W' in gothic script, for James Wilks goldsmith of London, who bore this mark in 1743. The ring is in excellent condition and would make a rather charming and unique wedding band!
