A wonderful, buttery high carat gold posy ring, circa late 1600’s, inscribed in italic script with the motto: In thee my choice, doe rejoyce.

Posy rings were often used to convey personal, private sentiments from one person to another. A ring being a very intimate gift, worn next to the skin, often on the ring finger of the left hand.

This D-shaped band, 3mm in width, measures at 7 ½, a very good size.
