Rings for Women

Rings as jewelry have a very old history. There are rings for women and rings for men. Women’s rings tend to be smaller and slimmer. The most common ring is the finger ring. There are other types of rings like earrings which are covered elsewhere. Most rings are metallic. The most precious are of gold or silver composition and usually set with precious gemstones.

Rings can be ornaments or beauty or someone can wear them to show how wealthy they are. Ornamental rings are usually not for the “ring” finger which is for engagement and wedding rings. The wedding ring finger is the one next to the little finger (pinky) on the left hand. In some cultures, the engagement ring moves from the left hand to the right hand after the wedding to give way to the wedding ring.

Historically rings were also a sign of authority and often times Kings sealed important documents with them.
