The ring 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.
Here LHN Jewelry has engraved a traditional posy text on the front of the signet ring- MY HEART AND I BEFORE I DIE.
• A classic mens signet ring
• Carved by hand
From his Brooklyn studio Lewis (LHN Jewelry) creates the unique hand crafted jewelry. When making work, he likes to use ancient processes like carving into wax and casting into brass, silver and gold. This is coupled with fabricating the jewelry by hand- sawing, engraving, hammering, and soldering the metals. This results in hand made eclectic jewelry, which is aesthetically beautiful and feels like old treasure.
