When was the earliest ring found?
The traces of the earliest rings were found in tombs of ancient Egypt. They were first found by Egyptians. The seal rings of the Egyptians had the name and title of the owner embedded deeply in them. They were used mostly for decoration purposes by the Egyptians. During the Roman Empire i.e. by the 3 rd century AD, rules were laid down on who could wear the ring. The Romans then allowed only the first-class upper-division people to wear gold rings. Low-class people wearing rings were strictly prohibited. Especially the gold rings. It was the Romans only who originated the auspicious and worldwide popular custom of engagement rings. It was them who brought us this ritual which is
believed to bond two different souls together.
With time the strict norms of Romans regarding the rings slowly pushed down. There is no division of people now to wear rings. Everyone who can afford has the right to wear them. The rings have a diverse range of styles and shapes. Think of any shape and you can have it in your ring. These types of rings are mostly custom made. It wouldn’t be profitable to unevenly cut shapes and sizes without asking the customers after all. The rings can be as cheap as $2 to as expensive as $ 80 million.
