Esto Perpetua - Emerald Diamond Ring
Discover something unlike any other! Secret messages, hidden meaning, personalized engraving all encompassed within one antique ring. To the interior engraved in script is the motto “Esto Perpetua” which is attributed to the 16th century Venetian theologian and mathematician Paolo Sarpi, also known as Fra Paolo. Reportedly these were his last words which he dedicated to his beloved city of Venezia: "Mayest thou endure forever!" Queen Victoria also wore an amulet at her wedding bearing this very same motto.
On the top, all a glitter is interwoven a monogram, with some combination of the letters “M”, “T or I” and “S”. The 10k rose gold ring is set with eight (8) petite natural emeralds along the curve of the “S” letter and sixteen (16) tiny rose cut diamonds inset on the legs of the “M”. Ornate shoulders offer open work and intricate patterning. Conjure your own history and make it happen.
