Rings have been worn
by people for over five thousand years, by people of all cultures.
For centuries, rings were used by royalty and the ruling classes as symbols of power. Rings
held the family crest; they were used as wax seal stamps on Royal correspondence to add
authenticity. Today, rings are used as jewelry for decorations, or symbols of love and commitment.
They are still used in ceremony to illustrate power; they can be very powerful symbolic objects.

because we love silver rings! It seems like our fingers were made for
they just feel like they belong on our hands. We always wear at least one silver ring, but we usually wear two, three or more at a time, and we find that many of our friends and customers do the same.
While the known
history of humans wearing rings goes back to the days of Ancient Egypt,
silver rings were first widely worn in Ancient Greece, especially around Athens in roughly 1,000 BC
after a large deposit of silver was discovered near the city. Over the centuries, rings made
of silver remained quite popular in the area, as the metal was easy enough to manipulate
into a ring, and also valuable enough to demonstrate the importance, style and status of the owner.
Silver became quite common for rings during
medieval times and was often used to symbolize
royalty, or even status among commoners. A good example are merchants and business owners,
who may have been able to own their silver rings. As silver became more available - and affordable -
the market for silver rings grew and as more people could acquire them, these rings
were often passed down from generation to generation as family heirlooms.
Today, silver rings
have become a staple of jewelry for men and women. They are used to
denote marriage, engagement, accomplishment and status as well as being simply decorative.
There are many different styles of rings, but they all are noteworthy thanks to the value of
silver and the countless variations in appearance, design, materials, and importance.
