Antique & Vintage Rings
Rings were firmly established as important pieces of jewelry that were inspired by an unforgettable fashion from history. Women of the Renaissance period were known for their classic rings, such as midi and first knuckle rings, which were adorned on different fingers. During this period, wedding rings also gained immense popularity. The practice of wearing rings on the left third finger was a common ritual among married couples.
In the Egyptian period, rings were recognized as a key ornament among the collection of jewelry for both men and women that signified strength and status. Before the Greco-Roman period, the fine art of intaglio was introduced by jewelry makers to their collection that later developed in the form of a signet ring, a piece of popular jewelry among men and women alike. From simple bands to ornate encrustations, these lovely pieces of jewelry represent a fascinating insight into the cultural history of mankind as well as the elegance of designer jewelry.
