Various ornamental jewelry is worn across the world, but the most common of them all, worn by both genders are rings. Finger rings are worn on different fingers on either hand to pass a particular message or to signify something, like family ties or social status, or marital status. In ancient times, Kings and Kinsmen had distinct rings that showed their ranks and authority.
A ring can be accessorized with an additional symbol to add more significance to the message being passed. A common symbolic accessory added to a ring is a skull. This goes back to the ancient times where skulls have been associated with danger like death, a reason why this symbol is commonly seen on many gang logos. However, this symbolic skull has been associated with cults and orthodox doctrines like Goth.
This trend, however, has widely been spread across all generations with the millennial falling for this as a trendy fashion. One of the primary reasons more men prefer skull symbols is because they act as a way of expressing masculinity and fierceness. The other reason is the thrill one gets by adorning such a symbol on their hands just like those tattoos they are getting imprinted on them. Jewelry manufacturers have embraced the incorporation of the skull in the rings, and therefore classy golden and silver skull rings are very fashionable.
Tips to consider when ordering a ring.
· The message you want to send out, as we have seen skull has a symbolic meaning, so, whenever you are ordering for this ring if it does not jeopardize or interfere with its actual intention, then you are ready to go.
