Handmade Dainty Delicate Stackable Thin 18K Rose Gold  and Silver Filigree Rings

A ring is a circular band, usually in metal, worn as ornamental jewelleryaround the finger, or sometimes the toe; it is the most common current meaning of the word "ring". Strictly speaking a normal ring is a finger ring(which may be hyphenated); other types of rings worn as ornaments areearrings, bracelets for the wrist, armlets or arm rings, toe rings and torcs or neck rings, but except perhaps for toe rings, the plain term "ring" is not normally used to refer to these.

Rings are traditionally usually in metal but can be of almost any material:metal, plastic, stone, wood, bone, glass, gemstone to name a few. They may be set with a gem or stone of some sort, which is often a precious or semi-precious gemstone such as diamond, ruby, sapphire or emerald, but can also be of almost any material.

Finger-ring wearing, choice of fingers

The fourth digit or ring finger of the left hand has become the customary place to wear a wedding ring in much of the world, though in certain countries the right hand finger is used.This custom was practically established as the norm during World War II.The use of the fourth finger of the left hand (the 'ring finger') is associated with an old belief that the left hand's ring finger is connected by a vein directly to the heart: the vena amoris or vein of love. This idea was known in 16th and 17th century England, when Henry Swinburnereferred to it in his book about marriage.[8] It can be traced back to ancient Rome, when Aulus Gellius cited Appianus as saying theancient Egyptians had found a fine nerve linking that particular finger to the heart.[9]
