Rings to Say Hello to by Michele Rolla
When your phone rings, do you answer it? Probably not. Most of us have advanced to texting as our preferred method of communication.
What comes to mind when you think about those who wear rings? Do you think only those in a committed relationship wear rings on their fingers? Are you missing out on expressing yourself through a beautiful finger-ring or another piece of jewelry?
We are blessed with ten fingers. We do not need any reason to wear rings or any other type of jewelry, other than we want to. Express yourself and wear the ring!
Today rings are worn by men, women, and children, and they are not limited to the fingers. We have put together a few interesting finger-ring tidbits for you. Read on for inspiration on your next ring.
Back in the Day
People have been wearing finger rings since the beginning of time. Back in the day, rings were often made from bones, shells, and feathers. Ancient gemstones were colorful pebbles.
Before being worn as a sign of commitment, jewelry was worn for superstitious reasons, warding off bad luck. It is said that the Egyptians were the first to present rings to their loved ones as a sign of eternal devotion.
During the Middle Ages, gold and silver bejeweled rings were reserved, by law, for royalty. Thankfully, times have changed!
