“A Ring is any circle or section of a cylinder. Rings of gold, silver, and of other metals and materials have been worn in all times and countries, and while they have been used to decorate the ears, neck, nose, lips, arms, legs, and toes, finger rings have always occupied the most important and significant place among such ornaments. From the earliest period of civilized relationships the finger ring was a convenient means for carrying the signet of its wearer. Fig. 1 shows a Jewish marriage ring beautifully wrought in gold filigree, and richly enamelled."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
