Engagement ring. Wedding ring…
A new design – and social – concept.
Sometimes made from a wedding ring.
A way of salvaging a beloved piece of jewelry.
A declaration of survival of divorce – and enduring family ties.
Often depicted by a gap in the ring’s circumference.
In these changing times, there are also rings for single people.
Signaling to the world that their wearers are happily, confidently single.
Interestingly, these message-conveying rings have led to more than a few dates with new acquaintances.
And, with the acceptance that relationships don’t last forever, there has emerged a marketplace for buying used engagement and wedding rings.
And specialty jewelry boxes to store the symbols of relationships that have gone by the boards.
So, there’s a ring (or jewelry box) for every occasion now.
