Unique Rings at A.K. Campbell.
Fashions for rings come and go just as fashions come and go for clothes and hats.
The popularity of rings came about during the Medieval times with all classes wearing them from the very poor to the very rich.
In those days, rings were typically made of iron, copper, silver, and gold. The material of the ring worn usually showed to everyone the class of the wearer. It wasn’t until around the 14th century that faceted jewels appeared on rings.
Some cultures have rings associated with them. Cultures such as the Native Americans use silver and turquoise in their jewellery. Early Christians used the Greek symbol, the Ichthys, which resembles a fish.
In the early 18th century, the rage was for very elaborate rings encrusted with diamonds and gemstones, whilst seed pearl and Scottish silver were popular during the latter Victorian era.
During the 20th century, ring fashions encompassed the look of almost every bygone era, as well as contemporary styles. This was partly due to custom-made rings becoming increasingly affordable via:
- New ring making techniques ( for example, computer aided design)
- More choice in ring metals and precious stones
- Normal bricks and mortar stores, like us, having to compete with online shopping (competition is good.)
In the 21st century, consumers have more choice than ever before, but trends set (or at least influenced) by industry advertising or by celebrity vogue have included some noticeable new ones.
