We want to make sure you are safe and your ring fits into your life, not the other way around.

History of Ceramic Rings
The history of ceramic rings goes all the way back to when human beings first started working with clay. Clay was often used to create ceramic pots, bricks, and eventually ornamental objects. The first pieces of jewelry were often made with materials that early man had laying around. For example, originally people would ornament themselves with fragments of bone, wood, shells, leather and more. However, when people began using clay to make pottery and useful tools, they would use the leftover clay to create ornamental objects for themselves and their loved ones. Some of the most common uses for clay jewelry pieces were religious jewelry pieces, markers, and more.
In the Victorian era, ceramic jewelry became very popular. Wealthy royals and aristocrats would have pieces of ceramic jewelry made for them by talented artisans and craftsmen. These were ceramic plaques that were decorated and added to broaches, rings, earrings, and necklaces.
Later in Europe and the United States, the arts and crafts movement increased the popularity of ceramic jewelry.

Ceramic jewelry from amateur artisans flooded the market and increased the supply of jewelry available.
