Cristy Cali Sterling Silver Magnolia Spoon Ring
Spoon rings date back as far as the 1600s in England and were originally thought to represent love, responsibility and commitment. As the story goes, servants who had fallen in love and wanted to propose marriage would steal silver spoons from their mastersâ�� homes and have them crafted into rings. They were too poor to afford any sort of â��realâ�� engagement ring, so this was their best alternative to offering a beautiful and valuable ring to the woman they wanted to make their wife. Though this particular meaning and practice behind the spoon ring began to diminish towards the beginning of the 19th century, popularity began to spike once more during the 60â��s and 70â��s. These days, we look at spoon rings as trendy additions to our jewelry collections; theyâ��re beautiful and fashionable and thatâ��s all there is to it.
