Women’s Rings

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Rings are the most desired gift by women for their symbolic meaning and because they accent a woman’s hand, complete an outfit and express a side of her pesonality. In addition, rings are the main symbol of marriage and a lifelong commitment to someone else. Why is marriage christened by rings and not other jewelry like bracelets, necklaces, or earrings? As a symbol of love, rings wrap tightly around a woman’s finger and represent the strength of two people’s love.

Rings have many different forms. In addition to the famous solitary there are a multitude of variations regrding materials and designs.

The choice of a ring depends on the occasion for which you want to wear it and must be combined with other accessories like makeup, clothing, and jewelry.

The most precious materials for ring metals are platinum and gold and the rings can be mounted with precious stones and semi-precious stones such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, aquamarine, topaz, amethyst, jade, quartz, and more.

Silver rings are very popular, thanks to the malleability of this material that allows itself to be worked in various ways. The malleable material of silver can be recessed with precious stones, chiselled with metal tools, bent, and designed to the vision of the artist. Silver is a material that is also commonly used due to its lower price than gold.

There are a few classic and timeless engagement rings as follows: the diamond solitaire characterized by a single stone, the trilogy formed by three stones, the riviere consisting of 4 or more stones arranged in a row, and finally the eternity model, consisting of a full circle of diamonds.

Recently popular are cocktail rings, which were born in the twenties during the period of Prohibitionism and are currently very popular and loved by women, characterized by a large and multifaceted stone. These are meant to provide an “accent” to an outfit and are considered more part of the outfit than just jewelry. Some popular cocktail rings are large shapes such as flowers, diamonds, shapes, or abstract items.

Last but not least, if you are looking for a truly, unique and retro model, there are self-defense rings from the Renaissance period called poison rings. Modern day self-defense rings such as the Go Guarded protective ring, Defender Ring™ self-defense ring, and Relentless Ring personal defense ring are all derived from the Poison Ring.

Renaissance period Poison Rings incorporated large size cavities and containers that held poison or other liquids, that could be opened and closed using a sliding lid closure. They were in effect small containers, used in ancient times to pour different types of poisons into glasses or plates. The modern day weapon rings all use different types of devices, most notably knives, points, blades, and hooks. These rings have been improved to be lighter and easier to carry with you. That is the main reason why containers in rings are no longer used – they are too big for someone to wear on their finger.
