God Above Increase Our Love'. This absolutely incredible, unusually chunky genuine posy ring dates from the mid 1700's and is in solid 18 carat gold. A thick and wide exaggerated D-shape, it's of hollow construction and entirely hand made. The tender dedication to the inner band is engraved by hand, and is invisible when worn. Posy rings became a popular choice for wedding rings during the mid-17th century, when the Puritan culture of Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth discouraged the wearing of ostentatious jewellery.It's an unusually large band rising 2.3 mm off the finger, and 4.5 mm wide. With some incredible deep patina of the centuries giving authenticity and character, it's in superb wearable condition with a few shallow scratches and dents as expected. It's a size 10.5, not resizeable. Weighs 2.7 grams and bears the maker's mark'R' to the inner band. What's more, I offer layaway deals so there's no need to let any of my listings slip through your fingers - just ask!
