Description

Gold posy ring 'I joy to find a constant mind'. A smoothly conforming yellow gold D-shape band, engraved to the interior 'I joy to find a constant mind' in elegant italic script, approximately 5mm in width. Tested yellow gold, approximately 6.48 grams in weight, circa 1725-1800.

The makers mark can be paralleled on a ring in the British Museum Collections, AF.1308, dated to the mid-18th century. The longer, rhyming inscriptions is also of a form that became more fashionable through the 18th century. KENT-B6CCD4, on this database, which was dated to the 18th century has a similar inscription and tri-partite makers mark. KENT-CC971A has the same inscription as this example but the lettering style is noticeably different with elongated S, i for j and long backward tail on the f all suggesting an earlier date.
