"Time Shall Tell I Love You Well" Antique Poesy Ring


The poesy ring is an example of a type of finger ring traditionally English in origin. The form dates back to the Middle Ages when the high carat gold rings were typically available only to the rich and noble of the period. The height of popularity for this type of sentimental jewelry was the 16th through the 18th century.

Scarce, in addition to being impressive on the hand in size, width and weight, this 22k yellow gold ring is suitable for a man or a woman. Quite intimate in nature, the romantic aphorism is deeply engraved to the interior. “Time Shall Tell I Love You Well” is beautifully rendered in clear Italic script across the inner surface of the convex ring.

Date: Late 17th to early 18th century.
