Ring Holder Round Up
One may note how many of them utilize certain elements that allude to their special contents
However, it is the idea of the ring itself that lends to these containers therie true special meaning.
Rings are highly symbolic objects. Wedding and engagement rings speak of promises and love. Graduation rings attest to accomplishments. Signature rings may directly correspond to identity. There are rings worn to display power, wealth, and beauty.
So as these containers are meant to hold rings, so are they imbibed with the rings rich symbology. As we have seen before, the art object (ring holder) derives its special meaning from something outside of itself..
