    Gold Posy Ring

    This is my best find so far and one I might have trouble beating

    I found it recently at my Abbey site, but it's been away being researched for a while so I can't put it in Todays Finds

    At first I thought it was just a modern wedding band with an inscription, but after looking at the style of writing and the
    spelling I wanted to give Crusader a call before I scrapped it

    He told me it definately needed looking at as it could be very early

    Research shows it is a 23 or 24 carat gold Poesy ring weighing 9.6 grammes, made between 1710 and 1750

    Inscription reads: God hath made thee my choyce, in him and thee i doe rejoyce.

    Good pictures of the inscription

    As I have shared with you but will repeat on here for those reading. These are extremely hard to come by & highly collectable. Add to that the size & weight with the unusual double line inscription, plus the condition, you do indeed have something hard to beat. In my opinion this is a true Banner find & one to be proud of.
