Platinum poesy rings cannot be antiqued (darkened), so these poesy rings sparkle with white lettering and design contrasting beautifully with the highly polished surface of the ring(s).

Fun facts: Whether spelled posie, poesy, posey, or posy, the word is pronounced like "posy" and refers to a ring that was popular during medieval and Renaissance times as a gift from lover to betrothed upon marriage. Quotations from courtship stories were inscribed, usually on the inside, but sometimes on the outside of the ring. Shakespeare popularized the rings by mentioning them in several of his plays. In Hamlet, "Is this a prologue or the posy of a ring?"

Our track record? 100% perfectly fitting platinum rings
Poesy rings do not match U.S. or Canadian sizes (or at least most sizes do not match).
Either before you order your platinum rings or when you order them, please request a poesy sizer from us.
We will send your a free sizer packet with instructions.
We ask you to contact us by email with the size(s) you need, and we will make the conversion to poesy sizes so . . .
1. You can order the correct size(s)
2. We can match up the correct size(s) to your already- placed order.
UK, Australia, and New Zealand customers, poesy sizes are matched to your letter sizes on our drop-down list, so you do not need to request our sizer gauge, though you can if you are not sure of your size.
Once we've established your poesy size(s), and you've ordered your platinum rings, we will send you free trial sterling silver rings, so you may confirm your size(s).
We ask that you wear your silver trial ring for at least 48 hours, to confirm your size.
Once you contact us with a size confirmation, we will put your platinum ring into production.
Sterling silver trial rings
Your trial ring is yours to keep. And if you previously bought sterling silver poesy rings from Crystal Realm, we'll apply the cost of your silver rings to your platinum order.
And about those sizes: We offer quarter, half, and whole sizes, so you can get the precise size you need.
