Inscription

{On the inside of a ring:}
Presented by the sixth Duke of Westminster to the users of Belgrave Square Garden to mark the start of the third millennium.
{on the outside edge of a ring:}
To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

The poetry is from "Auguries of Innocence" by William Blake.
For other armillary spheres see Wolff.
