Ring

Additional Links

Ring. The ring was regarded as an indispensable article of a Hebrew's attire, inasmuch as it contained his signet. It was, hence, the symbol of authority. Genesis 41:42; Esther 3:10. Rings were worn, not only by men, but by women. Isaiah 3:21. We may conclude from Exodus 28:11 that the rings contained a stone engraven with a device, or with the owner's name. The custom appears also to have prevailed among the Jews of the apostolic age. James 2:2.
