Ring a bell?

by Samsara 

There is such a wide variety of rings out there lately aside from our ordinary and classic ones;  cluster rings,  knuckle rings, two finger rings, bubble rings,  flower rings, stacked rings, fringe rings, cut-out rings and many more… Have we always had such an ample choice of shapes, styles and symbols? Dazzling rings encrusted with plant forms and animals -birds seem to be a big trend- rings adorned with not only stones but feathers, fur, wood, enamel and lucite. Then again, animals have been an adornment since the most remote times; a typical representation engraved in Egyptian rings was in fact the scarabaeus; early Christians used the Greek symbol Icthus, resembling a fish. And numerous materials were used even in ancient times. Maybe we haven’t invented much after all, nonetheless we can indulge in these magnificent jewels, stand assured there will be one to fit your style and budget. These are some of my favorites pieces.
