Adorn the one you adore with a message of "yovrs onli" (yours only). This reproduction silver poesy ring is based on the inscription found on the original, now in the British Museum collections. The gold original of this ring, with a delicate interlacing pattern engraved on the outside, was enameled in black, red, and white. The poesy "yovrs onli" in Middle English spelling is engraved on the inside. Medieval spellings were inconsistent and are rendered here as found on the original ring.

Poesy jewelry - sometimes spelled posy, posey, or posie - is a piece of jewelry inscribed with a sentiment, typically a romantic one, that was popular during the 15th - 17th centuries as gold rings. The styles and materials have evolved, but giving a loved one a piece of engraved jewelry with a personal message of love is timeless.

I've worn this ring for nearly 8 years and it has held up well. It is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.
I have had two of these rings that I have worn and given away. They haven't had it in the physical shop in a while so I ordered it online. I love the ring, so no big deal right? Wrong. They sent me the wrong ring. Sent it back and hope to receive the correct one next time.
