May 3, 2010 - The Ring

Through the centuries, the ring has adorned both lavish and penniless wearers.  This circular band has altered its significance and remains an enchanting piece of expression today.  As a company committed to detail, JNava notices the little things, the characteristic qualities that form our inner core.  Finding ways to creatively express ourselves and uniquely equip our appearance is fascinating.  The ring joins a network of symbolic representations and today we analyze its treasured history. 

In ancient times, the Egyptians and the Romans shared a belief that the vein from the fourth finger lead directly to the heart.  As such, it seemed a logical place for the placement of the wedding band.  This practice was passed down and the fourth finger is now universally known as the ring finger – 
No matter the occasion or material used, they possess an intimate reminder… very often they are received as gifts, both men and women enjoy their beauty, embellished or not.
I love the combination of precious metals and natural gem stones.  A polished jewel can create a renewed attitude and original flair.

Archaeologists have found references to wedding rings among the ancient Egyptians’ hieroglyphics
They are impressive conversation pieces, whether an engagement or birthstone ring, its bearer will kindly share their story… more times than none.

June-Pearl of Moonstone
October-Opal or Tourmaline
December-Blue Zircon or Turquoise
Birthstones have been used to give good luck on a person’s birthday.  They have been used for many centuries to celebrate ones birth.  Each birthstone has its own unique qualities –  Invest in this self discovery, the realization can be empowering!

No article of decoration has been so extensively and prodigally used in most ages and countries.
