A Lot, Passionately, and Not: Gold and Enamel Paneled Ring, France c. 1830-1860 [via mlkshk.com]
"Enamelled with roses and daisies, this ring was a charming lover’s gift. The little hinged panels set around the hoop open to reveal the French inscriptions: ‘I love you a little, a lot, passionately and not at all’, based on a game played by plucking the petals from a daisy. In the traditional language of flowers, roses symbolised love and daisies, innocence." [via V&A Digital Collections]
