Poesy Ring - A Pledge of Perfect Love
The poesy (posey) ring achieved its greatest popularity during the Middle Ages. By the Renaissance period these traditionally English rings had an aphorism or thought-provoking poem engraved on the interior of the band.
The expression or saying was meant to be private and worn next to the skin and became more romantic and intimate in nature as the statement on this particular high carat yellow gold ring indicates in beautiful Italic script: “A Pledge of Perfect Love”.
Even the discovery of the ring presents as exciting and picturesque as it was a metal detector find in England which was exempt from the Treasure Act of 1996 as the piece is dated after 1600 CE.
