An unusual double pansy ring with a central ruby. This would have sent a powerful message to the receiver of such a gift. The use of the two pansies in the design mean “Pense à Moi”, a pun on the word Pansy, literally translated “Think of me”.

There is a ditty that goes:

Oh my love
Just one last try
Like the first day
Think of me

The ruby is for love so it would have been a very special ring!
