Easton's Bible Dictionary
Used as an ornament to decorate the fingers, arms, wrists, and also the ears and the nose. Rings were used as a signet (Genesis 38:18
). They were given as a token of investment with authority (Genesis 41:42
; Esther 3:8-10
), and of favour and dignity (Luke 15:22
). They were generally worn by rich men (James 2:2
). They are mentioned by Isiah (3:21) among the adornments of Hebrew women.
