We have had a fascination with decorating and enhancing our bodies and complementing our clothing with jewelry since times before the Roman Empire and that is a lot of years by anyone’s standards. I cannot imagine that there are too many people who do not have one piece of their own personal treasure for sure. To own something special be it a necklace, earrings or a ring is almost like a rite of passage. So, you can imagine when I came across an armor ring that I knew immediately that I was on to something totally unique.
If you have never seen an armor ring, be prepared to be blown away. What makes them so amazing is the visual impact they create not just from putting one on and wearing it but from looking at them as a work of art too. We all love to be a little different sometimes and to create a bit of individuality and express it in such an awesome way is pretty satisfying.

They seem to have been very much favoured by people who love the Gothic style of clothing and certainly have been adopted by them. But, with the likes of Vivienne Westwood discovering the secret and bringing out a fantastic range of her own styles and designs on the theme, these beautiful pieces of what have to be described as a sculpture for your finger are going global.
Pewter and sterling silver are the favoured materials used to make an armor ring which pretty much ensures comfort and durability. Being jointed in the same places as your own fingers they are extremely easy to wear.
