Rings appear in almost every culture of the world and have been in existence for over six thousand years serving a multitude of purposes and satisfying decorative, practical and symbolic needs. They have been used to seal correspondences, authenticate documents and, of course, to pledge one heart to another.
Rings have often been used as symbolic expressions of faith. They have served to memorialize friendships, honor those who have left us and as talismans to provide protection against the forces of evil. Rings have also been used as tangible evidence of power and wealth. Miraculously, rings of all periods have survived providing valuable historical insight into various cultures and as a timeline of major design themes and materials.
