The Hittite civilization produced rings including signet rings, only a few of which have been discovered.[2] Old Kingdom Egypt had a variety of finger rings, and a few basic examples have been found, including the famous scarab design.[2] Egyptian rings became more common during the middle kingdom, with increasingly complex designs.[2] As well as metal Egyptians made rings from faience some of which were used as new year gifts.[3] The various Egyptian styles were replaced by Greek and Roman fashions during the Ptolemaic dynasty.[2] Archaic and classical Greek Archaic Greek rings were to some extent influenced by Egyptian rings, although they tended to be less substantial and apparently weren't for the most part used as working signet rings.[4] A lack of locally available gold meant that rings made in the eastern colonies tended to be made from silver and bronze while Etruria used gold.[4]  The classical period showed a shift away from bronze, using more silver and gold. The most typical design of the period involved a lozenge bezel mounting an intaglio device.
