To call an armor ring a piece of jewelry, whilst correct in its description is almost an insult because to be honest I have never seen anything quite like them before. Visually stunning and very impactive I think that they kind of need a more dramatic title to really give the kind of impression that they radiate.
If you have never seen an armor ring, then prepare to be blown away. If you are the type of person that loves to be a little different and use ideas to express your individuality in quirky ways; then I think that I have the perfect thing for you and you are sure to be pretty impressed by the fantastic array of styles and designs you see.
Also known as a full finger ring, Gothic ring or medieval ring to name but a few. They seem to have sat quietly in the Gothic style of dress category and have been favoured by them for quite some time and who can blame anybody? I am not sure that I would want to share something so cool either.
But, the secret is now out and with designers like Vivienne Westwood bringing out a range of designs in her own imaginative style these rings are no longer in the background of jewelry fashion and are really starting to enjoy a bit of limelight and establish a wider fan base.
They are not your stereotypical idea of what a ring should be really, yes you put one on your finger but, round and dainty they are not. They do have very delicate and intricate looking qualities for sure but they are also rugged and robust at the same time. Sounds a bit weird? Well maybe a paradox but because they are generally made of pewter or sterling silver (which are both very workable metals) they can be like this and have a fantastic comfort and durability about them too.
Consisting of 2 or 3 pieces of your chosen metal, each ring is jointed so as to slip over your finger covering it from the base to either just under your fingernail or to your second knuckle. The joints allow movement which flows with your own hand, so very easy to wear.
I have to say that I have never owned something that has ever created such interest when wearing it. After the curiosity of what it is has subsided, the main question is how and where can I get one, such is the effect this particular finger adornment or decoration has.
I am not sure of the origins of the armor ring but some of the other names suggest that maybe they have been around a lot longer than we know and perhaps they have been outshone for too long by the usual flash and sparkle that normally goes with the average ring. Well, I have found out you can attract plenty of attention without all that bling and for a fraction of the price too. Gold necklaces
