"Perit Ut Vivat" - He dies that he may live, C 1890 signet ring. A phoenix is a mythological bird that cyclically regenerates or is born again. Associated with fire and the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from ashes. The ability of the phoenix to be reborn from its own ashes makes it immortal. There will only ever be one phoenix at a time, and it is thought that the tears of the phoenix have life affirming properties. Size 3.75 and sizable. Weighs 7.2 grams.
