New Geo Rings!

geo-rings2

If you love jewelry that is unique, you will love these new Geo Rings we just got in! These pieces definitely make a statement or a conversation piece! Most of the pieces just feature a simple X, that sweeps across your finger.  One piece in the collection, has two connecting circles, in white and blue cubic zirconia. Another ring has two Xs that connect with a chain and bends at the knuckle, which is definitely different! What do you think about these? We are thinking these would make a great accessory for an evening dinner, date night, or even a birthday gift for a friend!

What about the shape of these rings, does it mean anything? I was thinking about the significance of the shape of the X and the O, which of course, with most people, means a hug and a kiss. I was wondering how these symbols originated. Most people these days write it on letters, or cards, and texting it to show that you love someone. xoxo

“The common custom of placing Xs on envelopes, notes and at the bottom of letters to mean kisses, dates back to the Middle Ages, when a Christian Cross was drawn on documents or letters to mean sincerity, faith and honesty. A kiss was then placed upon the cross, by the signer as a display of their sworn oath. It was also used in early Christian history as much of a display of the same.”  (source: wikipedia: hugs and kisses)

Another article states that, “The cross X, referred to the cross of Calvary and the first letter of the Greek word for Christ, which is Xristos. Even as little as a 150 years ago, not many people could read or write. The “X” at the bottom of the document took the place of a signature. They would kiss the “X” as a cruscifix or bibles was kissed to emphasize the importance of the mark. It was this practice that lead to the X representing a kiss.”  (source: web archive – hug and kiss)
