In vino veritas, in wine there is truth. This late Victorian signet ring features a hand holding a cluster of grapes, the crest of the Winchester family of Scotland. The family motto is not inscribed on this ring, but it is worth noting because it ties nicely into the wine theme, "Hoc ardua vincere docet" translates from the Latin as "This teaches us to overcome difficulties." Lol. British hallmarks.
