Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding gifts by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their true love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for "stealing a silver spoon" and this expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas.
Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten.
