Description
This elegant gold-plated silver ring, hand-enamelled and set with freshwater pearls, is inscribed inside with the 17th-century poesy ‘God above increase our love’. Poesy rings derive their name from the word ‘posy’ or ‘poesy’, a derivative of poetry meaning short rhyme. These rings were popular from the late medieval period onwards and were primarily used to communicate secret messages of love between the giver and the recipient, making this ring a thoughtful gift or keepsake. The wearing of words against the skin was believed to increase their poignancy. Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
