Rings are one of the oldest forms of adornment. They have a history that goes back thousands of years, to the time of ancient Egypt. In ancient days, a ring was simply a round flat band, usually made of precious metal, worn to indicate social status. Over the centuries, rings have developed into many shapes and styles, with each having their own unique purpose and symbolism. Today, rings are primarily worn for ornamentation; they are used as a symbol of love and affection or to ward off evil spirits.
Traditionally, rings are worn to ward off evil spirits. By wearing a ring, the spirits are unable to approach the wearer. Rings have been seen as symbols of class and wealth in some cultures. For this reason, rings are commonly worn by men on their left hands along with a small barbell which represents the heart. The left hand ring finger has always been considered most desirable since it is easily concealed and can be seen.
Traditionally, men’s rings were simple and made from simple materials. However, in modern times, rings come in a wide variety of styles and materials, depending upon how much money the wearer is willing to spend. Men’s rings can range from simple gold bands, to platinum and titanium. Popular metals used include diamond, silver, and platinum.
Traditionally, men’s rings are also worn for fertility and good health. The horseshoe shape of the two-pronged symbol was originally a symbol of luck. It is also believed to protect from drunkenness and intoxication. In many cultures, wearing the symbol in the form of a ring means that the man has protected his family and loved ones from evil spirits. For example, the horseshoe shape is often worn by those who are involved in risky sports such as cycling and skiing. A ring that has a horseshoe design shows protection and safety.
As we all know, rings are made from two different metals, usually gold and silver. Traditionally, the men’s ring finger is always bigger than the ring finger of the woman. Rings for men are usually larger and heavier compared to rings for women. They are made from a combination of precious metals and sometimes other materials such as wood. However, most men’s rings have a simple black band with no engraving. They are also available in various shapes, sizes and designs, but no matter the material used, they all symbolize enduring love and affection.
In our daily life, rings are very important and useful. Traditionally, men do not wear watches, but today watches have made its place in men’s fashion. Watches can be very masculine and complementing. With time, watches have evolved into functional and fashionable accessories as well. Moreover, rings for men have become more popular as men are beginning to realize the importance of these rings symbolizing eternal love.
