Posy Rings - 14k Yellow Gold

In 16th and 17th century England or France, a wedding ring would invariably be inscribed with a sentiment of love, faith, and hope: a short love poem, known as a posy or poesy (pronounced the same). A sterling silver betrothal ring would often be replaced with the same posy ring – or poesy ring – in gold upon marriage. The popularity of these posy rings is attested to by their frequent mention in Shakespeare’s plays. The tradition is older than Shakespeare’s time, but it was during the Renaissance (14th-17th Centuries) that the custom of poesy rings reached the height of popularity.
