Poesy rings reached their greatest popularity in the 16th and 17th centuries in England and France when they were used as a lover's token, a wedding ring, or simply as a means of showing regard or giving a gift. Their popularity in Elizabethan England is attested to by their frequent mention in Shakespeare's plays.

Vous et Nul Autre band
My late husband and I were engaged in Colonial Williamsburg and spent our honeymoon there. While my wedding rings were the scroll band and amethyst solitaire, he wore the Vous et Nul Autre (You and No Other) band. The solitaire wasn't practical in the barn around the horses, so I opted for a matching band. Over the years, various physical changes to my hands caused me to have to cut off my wedding band. This is a replacement for one which simply slipped off somewhere on the ranch. This ring combines memories of my husband and our times spent in Colonial Williamsburg. It is very special and I am so grateful to have it...
I love it thank you
