Venetian ring made in 18 kt yellow gold or gold-plated silver. The words Pax tibi, Marce, evangelista meus, inscribed on the book of the Gospel held open by the winged lion’s paw, are words that an angel who appeared to St. Mark in a dream is said to have spoken. Symbol of the evangelist, in the coat of arms of the Republic of Venice they constitute the motto of the city. What does “in moeca” mean? Seen from the front with its wings open in this position, the lion is reminiscent of a crab with open claws, moeca in Venetian being the crab during the moulting period; hence the Venetians, pragmatic as ever to quickly describe this type of lion, have nicknamed it Moeca. Certainly the Venetian lion is an indelible mark in history and is the one that still represents Venice to this day. You can choose the precious version in gold or silver, this ring is made to order in your size.
