What Are Poesy Rings?
(pronounced posey, just like a flower)
The popularity of poesy rings is attested to by their frequent mention in Shakespeare's plays. The tradition is older than
Shakespeare's time, but it was during the Renaissance (14th-17th Centuries) that the custom reached the height of popularity. During this time, the British aristocracy was wild about rings inscripted with poesies or
poems. Some poesy rings were inscripted in English; others in French, Latin, Gaelic and other languages.
Many poesy rings that Crystal Realm offers are licensed reproductions of Renaissance era poesy rings now found in great museums.
