Rings Jewelry Information

Back

Rings have been worn since 3000 B.C. and extensively so by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, and have been continuously worn ever since in all civilizations. They are easily the most popular form of jewelry. The  majority of collectible rings date from 1880 to the Retro period of the 1940s and will normally have gemstones as the main focal point.

   
  Rings from the Edwardian period (1901 - 1910) were adapted to suit the dainty and delicate designs of the period.  Moonstones, opals and pearls were favorite gems and were mounted in delicate settings.  Rings were popular for small children as well as babies at this time.  Rings were very popular in filigree settings made with precious metals and stones in conjunction with less expensive materials.  The octagon-style basket setting was popular along with the hexagon domed-top ring.  Dinner rings or banquet rings, made with rich lacework were fashioned in various styles, usually set with precious stones.  The Romany ring, consisting of two rings in one, usually had a diamond mounted in black onyx on one side while the flip side displayed a beautiful carved cameo. This type of ring was in vogue in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
