Along this gold band we find the words, "DIEU A EXAUCE NOS VOEUX" meaning, GOD HAS FULFILLED OUR WISHES. We can only imagine the horror and frustration that Louis XVIII and friends experienced beginning with the violent removal and beheading of brother King Louis XVI and subsequent revolution that transpired in France. Along came Napoleon, prolonging the exile of Louis XVIII to safer places such as Prussia, England and Russia. Jubilation, at last, in 1814 with the defeat of Napoleon (notwithstanding the escape and return of the emperor briefly in 1815), the Bourbon Monarchy was restored and Louis and his loyalists took power... Let's get matching rings to celebrate!Condition of the ring is good with wear around the edges of the medallion including a small piece of the gold encasing that has broken away (see photo). The delicate band is slightly out of round, however it slides easily onto a size 8 finger U. We do not recommend resizing this extraordinary museum-worthy jewel. The oval medallion measures 9.7 mms.
