3) Skull Jewelry Culture.
Cultures have often associated rings with wealth and status of the wearer. A unique accessory of a material that is difficult to access will be able to identify your status in society. 😮 In many eastern countries of the world, wearing a ring can signify that you are a wealthy person.
Although we no longer have class divisions in the West, in other parts of the world, a skull and crossbones ring is going to be an automatic qualifier in the tone placement in the healthy society.
Young people today often wear very flashy rings with a style that represents their passions or commitments, to support social causes and to pledge allegiance to a group. A simple Skull Ring can expose their identity and interest in the subject matter! 🤘
A Death's Head Ring could also be worn as a reminder of a past event. A Mexican Death's Head (Calavera) Ring could allude to a trip to Mexico during El Dia de Los Muertos for example.
As you can see, rings can have a particular meaning based on the cultural traditions of the countries. If we drift a little, in some of them, a ring can even be a requirement of faith for his religion. Rings and other Latin American Azabache jewelry are thought to offer protection to the wearer. Sikh men in India wear a brass bracelet from childhood to show their commitment to the faith as well. 🙏
In most of these places, rings are part of the culture and often part of the normal dress code. Whether it's for a religious, historical, or simply cultural association, this little piece of jewelry will, for many, define who you are.
4) Fingers Speak!
Each finger brings a different meaning, so take it to the next level with an accessory that reflects you. Understanding what each finger symbolizes is essential to understanding where to wear a Skull Ring.
The "Wedding" Finger
The most common known finger symbolism is the fourth finger on the left hand, which in many cultures is reserved for the engagement ring and then the wedding ring. Beware though: in some parts of the world this finger reserved for engagement and wedding rings is the fourth finger of the right hand. 💍
Many have made the mistake at least once of talking to a Polish person assuming they were single until they were told that the wedding ring was worn on the right hand in their country! In some traditions, it is unfortunate to wear rings on this finger before you get into a more serious relationship, for example saying that fate will slow down to bring you true love.
If you're already married, a skull and crossbones ring could look bad on this finger. That said, if you're not, it's one of the least intrusive fingers to wear a ring on!
The "little finger" or "index finger
The pinky and index finger have only become common fashion statements in recent years, this was not necessarily the case before. People choose to wear rings on these fingers to bring extra attention to the hand. 🖐 They can be quite bold as they really often make it very noticeable, but they can be excellently worn!
This is a way of saying "Look at the detail in the relief and design of my Silver Viking Death's Head Ring, it fits my perfectionist attitude perfectly."
The "middle" finger
The middle finger is the most popular finger of all for rings. This was due to the fact that people didn't want confusion between the wedding finger hand. That being the case, the middle finger was a safe bet. Because of its location on the hand, rings on this finger show a sense of balance and responsibility. 😌 Both men's and women's rings on this finger add glamour and class to an outfit. It will give your ring an extra sense of style without any effort.
You got it, every finger matters, you have to be careful with the placement of your Skull Ring to avoid misunderstandings. 🤨 We recommend you wear it on the pinky or index finger, where your style will be on point without being too flashy, or vulgar (because unfortunately, not everyone validates this yet unique style).
5) Because the skulls are the class!
Who has never felt among the Alpha of this world throws us the first Skull! 😂
Obviously, when we hear Skull Ring, it's a very broad topic, which interests more than one, and for that, there is something for everyone.

They will show a dominance, an attachment to a passion, a rock 'n' roll and metal side.
