I married into a Dutch family who have a beautiful motto "Nun Quam Sine Flore" or " Never Without Flowers" (Jamais sans Fleurs" in French and "Nooit Zonder Bloemen" in Dutch!) When each child born to the family turns 21 they are given a signet ring made especially for them with the family crest carved in a stone such as lapis, carnillion onyx and bloodstone. I love this tradition of crests and mottos and have run with it in a contempory way. I am working on silver rings that feature latin mottos but in the meantime, I have just completed these pendants. You can find them on Etsy. Enjoy. Jac.
