Declare your loyalty to someone special with this sterling silver ring. The ring is a faithful recreation of the original, now in the collections of the British Museum. The original of this ring, with a delicate floral pattern engraved on the outside, was enameled in green and white. The poesy "Faithles to None Yet Faithful to One" is engraved on the inside in Old English spelling.
Poesy or love rings are gold bands engraved with a brief poem or sentiment. Inscribed rings are found as early as classical times when the inscriptions were usually dedicatory. 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.
