Rings are one of the most favorite kinds of jewelry, as you can wear them for decades without removing them. They don't usually get in the way of work, and as our hands are some of the most active parts of our bodies, decorating them is very satisfying!

Rings have been used as signets, have been ascribed magical qualities, are sometimes infused with symbolic meaning, can carry poisons, perfumes or personal keepsakes and are as varied as material and imagination can create.
