Rose 14K Gold Posy Rings

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). The popularity of these poesy rings is attested to by their frequent mention in Shakespeare’s plays: “Is this the prologue or the poesy of a ring?” The tradition is dates to the 12th C., but it was during the Renaissance (14th-17th C.) that the custom reached the height of popularity. Very often a sterling silver betrothal ring would often be replaced with the same posy ring in gold upon marriage.
