The Circle is a powerful symbol of eternity and so the wearing of rings is a powerful and meaningful statement.
The wearing of rings can symbolise many things, marital status, membership of a group, achievement, authority, wealth. They are also often worn as amulets, especially when they contain a precious or semi precious stone. The wearing of a symbolic Birthstone in a ring has always been popular.
Rings such as Signet Rings also had an alternative use as a form of signature , before most people were literate. Signet Rings have become very popular recently and are commonly worn by Men, and increasingly by ladies.
The earliest known metal rings were discovered in the remains of the ancient city of Ur, in present day Iraq , and date back to 2500B.C. The Egyptians appeared to be the first civilization to exchange marriage rings, but as precious metals were expensive they were often made of woven reeds or leather.
Today Silver Rings have increased in popularity. Our Collections range from large statement rings to small rings which can be worn as clusters.
