perfect gift for an hf fan

Post by Alisha Marie Klapheke » Thu June 16th, 2011, 4:43 pm

So my anniversary approaches and my husband asked what I would like to receive as a gift from him. I mumbled something about jewelry made as reproductions of historically accurate pieces. He looked at me and said, "So, what, you like want me to buy you Joan of Arc's nipple ring? Cause you know that chick had one."

Your husband is a riot - nice one ...

You will keep us informed what the gift eventually turns out to be, won't you?

Little known fact of history: the real reason she was burned was because of a wardrobe malfunction. ;)

Perhaps you should offer to get him a Prince Albert ring at the same time as you get yours done!

Well, it's not Joan's naughty tittie wear, but instead a 16th c English posey ring.

Simple, sweet, and, most importantly, historically accurate!

The ring, engraved with a interlacing pattern, is a copy of one in the British Museum. The inside reads Yovrs onli which is basically a Middle English Yours only. I love it!
