Posey Rings - all I refuse and thee I chuse Traditional

Posey Rings - all I refuse and thee I chuse Traditional  

16th C. English Poesy (To size: 13-3/4 or Z+2.5)

Item # FW301R

Celebrate your love in Renaissance style with a most romantic expression. In Olde English inscribed on the inside of the band, the entire posey reads all I refuse, and thee I chuse. With a stylized floral pattern around the outside of the band, this ring is a reproduction of a 16th Century ring now found in the Fitzwilliam Museum in England.

Available in 14K or 18K yellow rose, or white gold, or platinum. Whole and half sizes 4 - 13.75 (UK/AU sizes H - Z+2.5). Band width: approx 6.0mm.

Antiquing: Choose Yay or Nay
You may opt to have your ring(s) antiqued or not. The rings shown are antiqued, meaning the lettering and design elements have been slightly darkened. Please note that the usually soft- medium grey of the lettering and/or designs on posey rings is hand-applied and thus varies from ring to ring. Two made at the same time will match each other. But we can't guarantee the level of darkness or lightness achieved in your lettering. Thanks for your understanding!

Includes a history card and a chic ring box. Priced individually. Hand- crafted in the U.S. by the ancient art of lost-wax casting. A portion of the proceeds of this ring supports the Fitzwilliam Museum.

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?"

Request a Guaranteed Fit
Our track record? 100% perfectly fitting rings!

We will guarantee your size providing you order and use our poesy ring sizer . . .

1. Before you order (link is below on this page)

2. When you order your ring(s).

What this means to you is that within 30 days from the day you received your rings:

If your poesy ring needs to be resized (or remade because it cannot be resized to the size you need), then:

1. You will not have to pay a resize fee (or a 15% restocking fee) to have your ring resized (or remade).
2. If you order your sizer when you order your gold or platinum rings, if your ring does not fit, we will provide discounted FedEx shipping for your resize or exchange on our FedEx account. With your permission we will charge the round trip shipping amount to your card for your convenience.

Why do we do this?

Poesy rings do not match U.S. or Canadian sizes (or at least most of them do not match)

When you ask us to guarantee your size, we'll 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. So 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.

One more benefit for you: We offer quarter, half, and whole sizes, so you can get the precise size you need.
