Recently, more and more people are wearing antique gold rings. Here you will find some of the most beautiful designs on the market. True splendor!
Such jewels are true works of art that have the power to make you stand out in a unique way. In fact, rings were among the first fashion accessories invented by humans due to their ease of manufacture. In addition, these fascinating jewels have always had special meanings.
Throughout history, some people have claimed that gold rings are inspired by the sun or the moon, while others have said that rings have a mystical meaning: they connect the world we know – the human world – with the spiritual and divine world. And of course, rings are considered a symbol of love (gold wedding and engagement rings are the most commonly worn types of rings on the planet).
The Ancient History of Antique Gold Rings
The oldest legend of the ring as a symbol of love dates back to the time of the Egyptian pharaohs. Before they discovered metalworking, they wove papyrus into rings as a symbol of eternal love that has no beginning and no end. The Egyptians also chose the ring finger to wear this piece of jewelry. A vein leading directly to the heart was thought to later be known as “stream of love” from the Greeks, ran from this finger.
Antique rings made of gold in the metal age had irregular edges and were not as perfectly polished as they are today. Rings were usually used to show off the wealth of the wearer, or they could also be used as currency.
In the Middle Ages, antique gold rings were increasingly decorated with precious and semi-precious stones. They are also becoming increasingly popular in wedding ceremonies as they are placed on the index finger rather than the ring finger.
The Renaissance produced extremely beautifully decorated antique gold rings. In addition, in France at that time, wedding rings had inscriptions promising eternal love.
