Antique Gold Poesy Ring
Only the very wealthy could afford to have high carat gold rings such as this example of 22k or higher yellow gold. Poesy rings, though used during the medieval period achieved the most popularity during the 16th and 18th century. The rings of the Middle Ages were more likely to be engraved on the outside of the band; the later ones on the interior and more often to be an expression of love.
This simple band of high carat gold is symbolic of eternal love. The ring is inscribed to the interior in Italic script with this most poignant saying, “united hearts death only parts”. No more need be uttered.
Measurements: 1/8 of an inch (0.4 cm) in width north to south on the hand. Weight of 4.7 grams (3.0 dwt).
Ring Size: US 9 (UK R-1/2; Euro 19, 60 mm). Our team of expert jewelers can size the ring to some degree and have the poesy remain intact.

Date & Origin: Circa early to mid 18th century and is English in origin.
