In some countries of the world, wearing any outward symbol of Christianity is forbidden. So, for instance, if you are a visitor in one of those places, you may not wear a ring which carries a cross.
For this reason, many Christians will wear a ring with some other kind of symbol, such as the Thorns design. Not long ago, we sold a matching pair of rings to a woman whose husband travels in Communist China (as a salesman) for that very reason! He was not allowed to enter company buildings with his former wedding ring, which had a prominent cross in it's design.
Sterling Silver Wreath of Thorns Ring , as well as the 14K Gold Wreath version in yellow and white, and in a 10K yellow gold version.
The "Crown of Thorns™" style, designed by Brad Ferguson in the early 1980's, is available in both flush and recessed designs, in 14K yellow or white gold. We also carry matching Crown of Thorns™ pendants for this style.
