Mens Rings From Then Till Now

Sunday, 08 March 2009

mens ringsFrom the time immemorial jewels symbolized prosperity and power.  Only persons vested with power afforded to wear ringstones, and whereas predominantly men were vested with such power, this jewel became exclusively their prerogative. A ringstone in gold or silver was not only just jewelry; it described belonging of the owner to the upper class. At that time the jewelry looked very simple and neat. Imprint of the seal ring affixed to documents and securities attested the will of the ring owner while proving the identity and serving as facsimile.

It was first in ancient Rome when rings and signet rings became so popular. The Roman men practiced wearing at once several rings and signet rings from gold and precious stones.

In Christianity men's rings are also becoming more and more fashionable.  Among them the most popular were «Fisherman's Rings». Such was the name for papal rings attesting his status as the Vicar of Peter in the world. The Popes caused to make their rings of various materials, as lead, bronze, and later on from gold with Apostolic Arms - crossed keys or Triple Crown. And every such ring was very unique. The imprint of such a ring attested the authenticity of documents of the Roman Curia, and was disposed just after a new Pope was elected.  For Meritorious Services copies of Roman seal rings were gifted to pilgrims and vergers of Catholic churches.

Ringstones served as a pass to clandestine meetings of monasterial order, such as the Order of Knights Templars, Jesuits, Mason whose secrets have not been disclosed yet. Mason rings with religious symbols were of special interest. The Masons used to wear bizarre cast-iron seal rings with the imprint of skull and crossbones (dead's head).

Miraculous qualities were attributed to the ring with turquoise. They believed that this ringstone-talisman brings wealth to its owner.

There are numerous myths about the rings. In the famous «The Nibelungen Saga» a young warrior Siegfried becomes the owner of the ring that provides power over the gold but draws curses to its owner. In the East it is much more comfortable to call the jinn and Almighty Spirit to fulfill any wish with the help of such magic ring.  The well-known ringstone of the Biblical Solomon granted power and health to a human being. And in the trilogy of Tolkien «The Lord of the Ring» the stumbling block is a smooth golden ring that has a power to conquer and enslave the whole world.

Yet, the most popular men's ring among the women is a «wedding ring» that does not differ with special involution. Over many centuries to come it hardly changed from the times of Ancient Egypt where people used to wear the ring on the fourth finger of the left hand.

The men's fingerings and seal rings are still in vogue nowadays. Solid rings are worn on the little finger, as a rule; fingerings and seal rings - on the second and fourth fingers. So popular and favorite are the rings of yellow or white color with traces of transparent, green, blue or black shades styled in constructivism. Many men cannot help decorating the fingering with their initials for the sake of remembering their names for ever.

Well-known jewelry companies create entire collection for men only. The jewelry mark Wellendorff distinguishes with its adherence to classical cannons and elegant severity. A prosperous man by Wellendorff is conservative and does not wear any jewelry on his hands but the wedding ring. The old-fashioned symbol of the matrimony is decorated with strict geometrical patterns made in enamel onto the white or yellow gold and obtains a complementary solidity being a handicraft. Since any item of this jewelry brand is handicraft and the period of its creation may last for up to the year.

The top trade mark in the sphere of jewelry for men is Baraka, the Italian company. The works of this very well-known brand won the popularity in the world upon their quality and unique identity.

They used industrial and military styles in their collections. Stylish men may get concerned in these unique and at the same time luxurious diamond fingerings by Baraka with rubber framing.

All over the world men seek to reveal that they wear jewelry only because of necessity and even for the benefit. They argue in favor of their liking to jewelry in the way that their jewels is a talisman required for well-being or the said ring is the visit card of the secret society. As for the legendary Borgia family the rings were of practical significance. Cesare Borgia made their rings famous because he killed anyone whom he did not like with the help of his rings.

At our times celebrities wear fingerings not for such purposes but to enjoy and demonstrate their status. Freddie Mercury, Jack Nicholson, Augusto Farfus and many other famous and prosperous men were among the lovers of such jewels, the ones who have a thing to this luxury jewelry.
