Posie Ring
Posie rings (sometimes spelled posy, posey or poesy rings) are gold finger rings with a short inscription on their surface. They were popular during the 15th through the 17th centuries in both England and France as lover's gifts. The language used in many early posy rings was Norman French, with French, Latin and English used in later times. The quotations were often from contemporary courtship stories or chapbooks and usually inscribed on the inner surface of the ring. The rings were also given to show regard or as a gift.
The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, England, has an outstanding collection. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London also has a good collection bequeathed by Dr. Joan Evans. She compiled a list of more than 3000 posies for her book English Posies and Posy Rings.

busy bee quilts: Ring Around the Posy Quilt Finish
I am excited that I finally got this quilt finished and on my girls’ bed! When I saw this spring line from Aneela Hoey earlier this year I just had to make a quilt for my daughters. The little bunnies and girls reading are just so sweet I couldn’t resist.
