Poesy Rings - Custom or Traditional Gold & Platinum Poesy (aka Posy) Rings

Traditional posy (aka poesy) rings in gold and platinum, custom poesy rings in gold, palladium, and platinum.

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 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 reached the height of popularity.

We are the posy ring specialists. Here is how our expertise benefits you. For your convenience, we carry every style of posy ring all the time; offer every style in every metal: 14K and 18K white, yellow, and rose gold and platinum; make custom rings also in palladium, a white, durable, non-allergenic, platinum-family metal; offer quarter, half, and three-quarter sizes; offer custom as well as traditional poesy rings; and offer custom bridal sets in which poesy rings are paired with hand-woven puzzle engagement rings.

And importantly, when you use our ring sizer, we guarantee your fit, crucial because traditional poesy rings do not match U.S. ring sizes. Our guarantee means that if your ring does not fit, after you have used our sizer, we will resize or exchange it at no charge to you including shipping costs within the U.S.
