With some of the best armor rings I think you have a piece of jewelry that has really stood the test of time, but because they have never been considered high fashion, have sat quietly and charismatically in the background content to let other more gaudy and sparkling pieces of finger jewelry have the limelight. Well, I think that the time for them to shine and have their rightfully earned place centre stage is just about now.
With the likes of top designers such as Vivienne Westwood putting her own awesome mark on styles and designs as well as some top stars wearing them you just know that you are going to see some pretty breathtaking rings.
Round and boring? No conventional and conformist? No. How about something so visually impactive that you get stopped and asked loads of questions when you wear it? Such is the stir that they seem to create but, when you see them you can quickly begin to understand why.
Yes they are worn on one of your digits and fit around it so, they are a ring by definition but, this is where your stereotypical ideas of what to expect are pretty much blown away in one small viewing. Also known as full finger ring, gothic ring, medieval ring or sometimes slave ring then maybe you get a bit of a clue that ordinary is not a possibility here.
Covering from the base of your finger to either the second knuckle or just under the finger nail on your chosen digit, they are made 2 or 3 pieces of cleverly jointed metal so that they move with your own hand which is really amazing.
Being generally fashioned from inexpensive pewter or sterling silver they are very reasonable to buy. You get a lot of jewelry for little outlay and the craftsmanship that goes into the styles and designs certainly does not reflect in the cost. Some of the pieces are intricately carved or have delicate scroll work whilst others are far more rugged and menacing in appearance.
They have very much been favoured as an accessory by people who love the Goth style of dress but, with fashion becoming less inhibited and more flamboyant and being able to express your individuality without being judged so harshly by those who are a little more conformist, there has never been a better time to enjoy wearing such unique finger adornments.
With designs cleverly depicting protective metal wear very symbolic of knights of old, you almost feel privileged and honoured to own one and they ooze quiet respect. Or, with small delicate chain work decoratively linking between the pieces you have a dainty piece fit for any fair maiden. Finger armor rings really are something that need to be seen to be fully appreciated and whether you choose one for yourself or maybe as a fantastic gift for somebody, then you will not be disappointed.
