Cornish love ring
Cornish love ring – highly polished Sterling silver love ring with Cornish inscription around the circumference.
Inscription reads: Un bysow dhe dhysquedhes agan kerensa which translates as One ring to show our love.
During the 12th century the Cornish knight, Tristan, defeated the Irish knight, Morholt, to bring the fair Iseult home for his uncle, King Mark, to marry. On the journey back to Cornwall, after ingesting a love potion, Tristan and Iseult fell madly in love. Their complete devotion to each other is symbolised by the Cornish love ring.
