When the fantastic designers at Monica Rich Kosann came out with their Evil Eye Poesy Ring collection, it became clear that they are romantic history buffs as well as creative geniuses.
To understand the beautiful meaning behind these rings, it is important to understand the history of the Poesy. It dates back to the world of Knights and damsels in distress. When the knights would traverse off on their dangerous missions, there was a tradition where they would leave their maidens a ring as a token of their love.
On these rings, the knights would engrave short but significant messages. These were called 'Poesys'. The messages could be dates, scriptures, names, or anything, but most often, they were single words.
This collection offers rings that are meant to hang on a necklace, as the rings given by knights were too big to fit on a maiden's finger, and would be worn on chains or ribbons around the neck instead.
The word 'Protect' engraved on the inside sends a lovely message of strength, support, confidence, and love. It is the perfect gift for a loved one heading into new territory, be that a war zone, college, marriage, a religious mission, or what have you.
The designers created the ring with a layer of black rhodium on top of the beautiful sterling silver. This rhodium is meant to wear off over time, creating a gorgeous aged look as the shiny silver shines through in a very individual pattern.
Between the message, the rhodium, and the many occasions it works for, you can be certain that this is a piece that will be one-of-a-kind in meaning and appearance.
