Like necklaces, arm adornments date back to the earliest of times. Historical artifacts indicate they served practical and religious functions, as well as ornamental displays of beauty.
Rings are an ancient jewelry, often with a great deal of sentiment attached to them. Wedding rings are a token of a lifetime commitment made between a loving couple. Signet rings were historically used as an official signature or an official seal on documents, letters and notes, by royalty and other powerful public figures. Even finger placement is important with rings, the symbolism varying from culture to culture. For cat lovers, rings are great feline fun!
All over the world historical evidence shows jewelry decorating ankles, feet and toes. Elaborate ankle bracelets, delicate barefoot sandals and distinctive toe rings decorate the feet of dancers, courtesans and ordinary people.
