Rings are an ancient form of self-adornment that has carried on into today. Originally, rings were created and worn by the ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks, although there is a bit of an archaeological standoff on the origin of the oldest ring known to man. The rings of our lives seem to hold a special place in our hearts and conscience. We use rings for special occasions, in remembrance, fraternity and celebration. Rings are given, inherited, promised and sometimes hold a mystery or two. Rocks & Co. online and TV makes it a pleasure for you find the style, size, gemstone and precious metal type in a ring that is truly you.
Diamond rings have been the traditional engagement ring for eons and feature the strongest gemstone known to man. Diamonds are pricey, but actually not that rare compared to some other precious gems. Yet Diamond rings are known as a collectable investment. The quality of Diamonds is pretty easily detected with the help of trusted jewellers and the GIA. It is important to deal with jewellers who work exclusively with mines that use ethical practices. Is the classic solitaire with a pronged setting what comes to mind when shopping for your Diamond ring? At Rocks & Co., some gorgeous alternate Diamond ring settings include the eternity ring setting, which has smaller Diamonds set evenly around the circumference of the band. This can be incredibly beautiful in white, yellow or pink gold set thinner bands. The choice of Diamond colour is also flexible with the numerous juicy fruit colours of fancy Diamonds available. Another option is a multi-eternity setting, where the gem-set bands are connected in a 'roller ring' style. Diamond rings are worn as cocktail and statement rings by women and men, who choose to use the jewel as a symbol of independence and in celebration of achievement. Although white Diamond rings are the traditional go-to, fancy Diamond rings are becoming more and more sought after as well.
Men have worn rings throughout the ages and were actually the first to wear rings. The new popularity of men's rings should not be a surprising trend. At Rocks & Co. and in the rest of the world, men seem to gravitate more towards the white precious metal rings of sterling silver and white gold. The designs tend to be bigger with a wider band, a larger solitaire cut gem or eternity setting of smaller stones. In addition to wedding bands, men's rings are worn to identify with fraternities, clubs and to celebrate business achievements. Rings: enjoyed more and more by men as a personal statement of style.
Eternity rings use a universal circular symbol in the settings. A classic eternity ring will have a band, set with the same size or differentiating size gemstones set evenly all around the circumference, creating the eternal circle. Given as promise rings, engagement rings and wedding rings, the symbolism of this ring is of an enduring relationship to another or a spiritual commitment.
Rings in Gold
'Rings of Gold' was a sweet country song by Dottie & Don - Don Gibson & Dottie West in 1969 - which reached number 2 on the Billboard chart. It talks about the rings representing love and loyalty, but turning to dust! Luckily real gold rings are built to last. The classic wedding ring has been a ring of gold, which one of the strongest most valuable precious metals in the world. Gold rings are and have been thought of as wearable investments.

Opals are a gemstone world within the gemstone world. The gem has up to 20% water trapped in a silica structure, a result of seasonal rains drenching the desert soil, such as in the Australian outback. Because of its amorphous structure, it is characterised as a mineraloid, not a mineral. There are so many incredible Opal rings to choose from at Rocks & Co. Our Opal rings collections include the intense multi-coloured opaque gems that display the coveted colour-play (iridescence) and Fire Opals, the single coloured transparent gems. Opal rings are a favourite with some of the ladies seeking a non-traditional gemstone option for wedding and engagement rings. The opalescence of the stone is incredible when set in yellow gold. Some of our Welo Opal jewellery designs are nothing short of breathtaking.
