Ring (jewellery)


A finger ring is a circular band worn as a type of ornamental jewelry around a finger; it is the most common current meaning of the word ring. Other types of metal bands worn as ornaments are also called rings, such as arm rings and neck rings.

Rings are worn by both men and women and can be of any quality. Rings can be made of metal, plastic, wood, bone, glass, gemstone or other materials. They may be set with a "stone" of some sort, which is often a precious or semi-precious gemstone such as diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald, but can also be of almost any material.

History of rings

The custom of giving and receiving rings dates back over 4,800 years.

The fourth digit or ring finger of the hand has become the customary place to wear a wedding ring in much of the world. It is associated with an old belief that the left hand's ring finger is connected by a vein directly to the heart: the vena amoris or vein of love. This idea was known in 16th and 17th century England, when Henry Swinburne referred to it in his book about marriage.It can be traced back to ancient Rome, when Aulus Gellius cited Appianus as saying the ancient Egyptians had found a fine nerve linking that particular finger to the heart.While he was discussing the ring finger, Gellius did not mention actual wedding or love rings.

In Italy, most older Italian men wear rings on their little finger.

Finger rings

Shapes and styles

Various ring shapes and styles exist. The following are but a few.

  • Flat wedding bands are the simplest form of ring that can be made. A flat wedding band basically consists of a strip of metal that is bent around into a loop and joined where the ends meet.
  • Half-round rings, also called D-shape rings, are flat wedding bands that are filed half-round on the outside.
  • Sleeve rings are rings that consist of a thin inner ring or sleeve, with several other rings stacked onto it to form one solid ring. The rings can either be soldered onto the sleeve or the ends of the sleeve can be upset (like a tube rivet) to keep them all together. A little of both can also be done.
  • Solitaire rings are rings with a single large stone as a centrepiece, usually a diamond.
  • Eternity rings are rings with stones, usually diamonds, of the same cut and size, set in one row all around the ring. The stones are usually round or square, and the setting is usually either claws or a channel setting. When the stones do not continue around the entire ring, but stop halfway around the finger, it is called a half-eternity ring.
  • Trinity rings or Trilogy Rings are three rings to be worn at one time.
  • Double-finger rings or Three-finger rings are rings with one large or several connected holes. It looks like Brass knuckles.
  • Cluster rings are rings with a group of stones in a cluster setting, forming the focal point of the ring. The cluster setting usually consists of one large stone (usually round or oval) in the center surrounded with several smaller stones.
  • Tension Rings are a type of ring in which a single gemstone is held in place by pressure rather than prongs, a bezel or other mounting. The metal setting is actually spring-loaded to exert pressure onto the gemstone.
