Partnership Rings.

Archaeological discoveries dating back more than three millennia indicate that, in ancient cultures, couples exchanged rings braided from reeds and other plant materials. From ancient tomb paintings these rings seem to have been worn on the third finger of the left hand; a forerunner of modern western tradition. However, in ancient Roman times, wedding bands seemed to serve mainly as a symbol of ownership of a woman. These rings were made of various metals; gold and probably copper or iron.

Since Gay Pride, the gender fluid revolution and major changes in the law, a demand for new symbols of identity in relationship has arisen. Some of these images here, are of wedding rings or partnership rings that have evolved in response to the uniqueness of a couple's relationship. They have been commissioned and designed in conversation with the couple.
