gold love-ring with sapphire setting, 15th century

The inscription on the outside of this ring reads une fame nominative a fait de moy son dative par la parole genitive en depit de l’accusatiff / “A nominative lady has made me her dative by the genitive word despite the accusative”, making this the perfect wedding ring for grammar nerds.

On the inside of the ring, a lady holds a squirrel on a leash, tempting it into her lap with acorns. The inner inscription reads s(i?)s amour est infiniti(v)e ge veu este son relatiff / “Love is infinite for her relative”, so it would appear that the groom and his breeches-squirrel were pleased with this arrangement.
