19th Century Carnelian Intaglio Ring

About

This fine intaglio engraving depicts two doves tying a love knot with the French motto, "LE PLUS LOIN LE PLUS SERRE," loosely translated as, "The higher I fly (or the further I fly), the tighter I tie.” Mourning The two birds (winged souls) tying together the knot of eternity and love as the ship sails away from the cliff face. The boat can be taken as a literal interpretation of distance, or as the passage of a soul towards the afterlife thus the symbolism falls into the sentiment of mourning. Mounted in 18kt Gold Weight 16.2gr. Size 7
