I love these posey or posey rings, and I always buy them when I can, and have a small collection of them myself. Guess it's only natural for am old English teacher to like poetry. This tests 18 carat gold, and the sentiment, "Let's Live and Love in Unity," is very legible. The ring is a size 6 and 1/2, and it weighs 2.05 grams. The ring is quite wearable, with a 1/8 inch band and little or no wearing. This ring is circa 1770.
