Posie rings (sometimes known as posy, posey or poesy rings) are gold finger rings with a short inscription on their inner surface. They were popular during the 15th through the 17th centuries in both England and France as lover's gifts. The language used in many early posy rings was Norman French, with French, Latin and English used in later times. The quotations were often from contemporary courtship stories and usually inscribed on the inner surface of the ring. The rings were also given to show regard or as a gift.    This Posie ring is probably from the late 17th to early 18th Century judging by the style of inscription in the inner ring.  The inscription reads "In absence forget not".  This ring is NOT hallmarked but from that age would have been a very high carat of gold.  The ring measures 17mm in diameter an 2.5mm in depth. The weight of the ring is 1g. sale estimate below - its real value can be up to 3 times this amount. Please contact me for a shipping quotation outside the UK.
