The History of Rings

Nearly every culture has some form of a ring. This jewelry type has been around for over 6,000 years. Since the dawn of time, rings have been used for a wide range of purposes that are both practical and symbolically significant.

For example, rings have long been used as a symbol of commitment, as a way to seal letters, and as a means of verifying the authenticity of documents. Talismans for good luck and protection from the forces of evil are among the many purposes for which they’ve been used.

As a symbol of faith or wealth, rings have also been worn to symbolize authority and power. rings from every era have been preserved, providing valuable historical information about various cultures and a timeline of significant design themes and materials in jewelry history.

Scarab rings made of lapis lazuli, amethyst, rock crystal, and turquoise were worn by ancient Egyptians. They were threaded with silver or gold wire. On the flat side of the scarab, hieroglyphs, protective symbols, or titles were incised. The scarabs could then be swiveled to serve as both a signet and an amulet. Egyptian goldsmiths crafted all stirrup-shaped metal rings bearing the royal cartouche during the New Kingdom period (1559–1085 B.C.). These rings were used to authenticate documents and serve as visible symbols of rank and power. Even though the materials were carefully worked and pleasing arrangements of stones and designs can be seen, Egyptians wore rings for religious and talismanic purposes rather than just for decoration.

Ancient Romans (like the Greeks) wore rings for various reasons, including decoration. In ancient Greece, people wore scarab rings and signet rings engraved with images from literature and mythology. Gems set in bezels and plain gold rings were worn for their aesthetic value, rarity, and talismanic properties. Wire, filigree, and intricate pierced work could also be used to make rings.

The first rings used as seals in ancient Rome were ironed during the Roman Republic. The jus annuli aurei, or right to wear gold rings, was initially reserved for senators serving as ambassadors of the Republic.

However, all civilians were eventually granted the right to wear gold rings. Later in Roman history, men and women began to wear heavy gold rings set with rare and expensive gems in ever more prominent displays of wealth and status. By the first century AD, a person’s fingers could be adorned with multiple rings, making it rare to wear just one at a time.

For the Romans, two hands clasped as a symbol for marriage and fidelity was known as “dextrarum” or “dexterum” in Latin. The right hand was linked to Fides, the god of commitment in Roman symbolism, and this motif resurfaces as the fede ring in the Middle Ages. Ancient texts state that the betrothal ring should be worn on the fourth finger of the left hand.

The fourth finger was believed to be the site of the vena amoris, which runs through this finger, led directly to the heart.

The marriage knot, a symbolic and straightforward design of two intertwined ropes, is likely the origin of the phrase “tying the knot.”

The signet ring was one of the most popular ring designs among the Romans. When it came to engraving and gem setting, the best and the brightest artists were drawn to Rome because of the city’s luxury, according to Diana Scarisbrick.

Signet rings sealed official documents, and intaglios of gemstones were often engraved with the wearer’s portrait. Large and ornate ornaments were also worn for their aesthetic value. Portraits of poets and philosophers and depictions of everyday life were among the most popular subjects. In addition, signet rings with intaglios depicting lovers’ faces facing each other were popular wedding rings that incorporated the theme of love.
