When love doth remayne Parting is vayne.
The name "posy" was derived from the amatory inscription which this type of ring bears which was usually in rhyme or ""poesy". These rings were usually given by both men and women as an expression of regard, friendship, attachment or love. Their popularity peaked in the 16th and 17th centuries and by the 18th century most posy rings were used as wedding rings.
