The first piece of jewelry I ever bought myself, aged 12, was a ring that I cherish to this very day. Not because its value has gone up more than anything the stock market could offer, but for its intrinsic beauty that I hope one day my granddaughter will enjoy on her fingers.
What woman can resist a gorgeous ring? It's the one jewel that we can see on ourselves. Simply hold out your hand and enjoy the magnificent materials and exquisite workmanship created in an age long gone bye, reminding us immediately of the dear person who gave us this gift. More than any other form of jewelry, rings express the exclusive personality of the wearer.
Once fitted with seals to formally symbolize the owner, every ring conveys subtle personal traits of the wearer. The choice of fine gemstone - whether diamond, emerald, ruby or sapphire, or any other enchanting material, the size, cut and color, the mount set in platinum or gold and finally the design - does it express flamboyant fun or understated elegance?
In days gone by, rings were worn to protect the wearer from evil forces in the universe. Rings were worn to attract special benefits from the gods and planets and rings were worn for medical reasons. Religious rings for lay people and clergy became popular from the Middle Ages onwards.
Rings are the symbol of eternity and the infinite, so they have become synonymous with love. Poesy rings were rings with engraved messages of romance, given to lovers, hundreds of years ago.
You know the saying "nothing says I love you better than a beautiful ring". It's true - and nothing connects the wearer to the giver of a beautiful wedding or engagement ring. No surprise that men with good sense understand that the perfect way to her heart is through a perfect antique ring.
Men wear lots of rings too. Some of the most beautiful jewelry was made in the form of rings for men. In the East, men wear multiple rings – many more than their ladies. In the west, the trend has only just begun, but more and more men wear more and more rings. Today, a great jewel is a great jewel and can be worn by either gender.
