The ring has consistently been the most popular piece of jewelry. It has been said that the ring is “the article of jewelry around which centers tradition, antiquity, utility and symbolic meaning of the greatest reverential character.”
Rings were extremely popular among the Romans. An atmosphere of magic and charm has always surrounded rings. The faith in the curative powers of stones and the protective powers attributed to some of them, induced their owners to carry the stones by setting them in circlets of gold, silver or bronze to be worn on their fingers. For instance, amethysts were supposed to keep one sober and turquoise would change color in the presence of poison. Papal rings were given to the popes ambassadors as an assurance of safe conduct. For further protection the rings were made of gilded bronze with paste stones, which all knowledgeable road bandits were aware of.
