Description

Gold posy ring, 'I have obtained whome God ordained'. A yellow gold D-shape band, the exterior engraved around the full circumference with a scrolling stylised foliate design, the interior engraved in italic script 'I have obtained whome God ordained', approximately 4.4mm in width. Tested yellow gold, maker's mark 'SV' within a square punchmark with crown to top, circa 1700.

See British Museum object number 1961,1202.115 for a posy with a similar maker's mark. This maker's mark is not listed in 'London Goldsmiths 1697-1837 Their Marks and Lives', Grimwade, A.G., 1976.

Variations of this posy motto are catalogued in 'English Posies and Posy Rings', Evans, J., p.52-53, however none are recorded with this exact spelling.
