History of rings
The custom of giving and receiving rings dates back over 4,800 years. The ring finger of the hand has become the customary place for a wedding ring in much of the world. It started from a 16th-century in Tudor, it was belief that the left-handed ring finger was connected by a vein directly to the heart; thus, wearing a ring on the third finger demonstrated that the wearer was in a relationship.
Shapes and styles of finger rings
Various ring shapes and styles that exists:
Flat wedding bands : the simplest form. Basically consists of a strip of metal that is bent around into a loop and joined where the ends meet.
Half-round rings, also called D-shape rings, are flat wedding bands that are filed half-round on the outside.
Sleeve rings : consists of a thin inner ring or sleeve, with several other rings stacked onto it to form one solid ring. The rings can either be soldered onto the sleeve or the ends of the sleeve can be upset (like a tube rivet) to keep them all together. A little of both can also be done.
Solitaire rings : rings with a single large stone as a centerpiece, usually a diamond.
Eternity rings : rings with stones, usually diamonds, of the same cut and size, set in one row all around the ring. The stones are usually round or square, and the setting is usually either claws or a channel setting. When the stones do not continue around the entire ring, but stop halfway around the finger, it is called a half-eternity ring.
Trinity rings or Trilogy Rings are three rings to be worn at one time.
Cluster rings are rings with a group of stones in a cluster setting, forming the focal point of the ring. The cluster setting usually consists of one large stone (usually round or oval) in the center surrounded with several smaller stones.
Tension Rings are a type of ring in which a single gemstone is held in place by pressure rather than prongs, a bezel or other mounting. The metal setting is actually spring-loaded to exert pressure onto the gemstone.
