This charm was influenced by 15th - 16th century English and French Posy rings. Posy rings derive their name from the word "posy" or "poesy" - a derivative of poetry meaning short rhyme. The rings were popular from the late medieval period onwards and were used to communicate messages of love between the giver and the recipient.
