3️⃣ Reasons to wear a Dragon Ring
1/ A Dragon Ring creates a Unique Identity
In a world where everybody looks the same, wearing a dragon ring will make you stand out and draw the attention of your peers. It will let you create a style that is uniquely yours and that will be remembered.
A dragon ring can have many styles and designs (whether it be inspired by Chinese mythology, Viking rings, Celtic jewelry...) which directly express your personality and what you are interested in.
Also, If you're in a place where your clothes are not meant to express your style (at work for instance), it is very likely that the only accessory you can wear is a ring or some other kind of jewelry such as a bracelet or a pendant. In that case, a dragon ring will give a uniqueness to your outfit even if you wear simple clothes without any logo or particular design on them.
2/ A Dragon Ring is a great topic of Conversation / Icebreaker
Accessories are visual clues of your personality, and a beautiful dragon ring will likely catch the attention of those around you. You could literally meet new people just by wearing a distinctive ring around your finger!
Imagine being at a music festival (or any kind of social event). People are often very open to discussion, and we're pretty sure that many will come and ask you questions about your favorite accessory. Maybe they'll like to know about its meaning: "Your rings looks really cool, what does it represent?". Or maybe they'll look for information about its origin: "Wow, your dragon ring is awesome, where did you buy it?"
As you can see, wearing a dragon ring can be a great way to create conversations. It could even be the excuse that a pretty woman in a cafe needs to start a discussion, or a nice topic to get going again if there's a lull, who knows! 😉
3/ The Culture of Jewelry
Rings are often associated with the wealth and status of their wearer. A unique accessory made of a noble material will let you assert your status in society. For instance, in many Eastern countries, wearing a ring may mean that you are a wealthy or important person.
Young people today often wear distinctive rings with a style that represents their passions or commitments, or to show their belonging to a group. A dragon ring can let you express your identity, values or simply your interest for the subject!
A dragon ring could also be worn as a reminder of a past event. For example, a ring with an Oriental dragon (Chinese, Japanese, Korean...) could allude to a trip to Asia where the mythical creature is omnipresent and plays a big cultural role.
The Symbolism of Dragon Rings
The Japanese consider dragons to be creatures whose power and might are equal to that of the gods. When you choose to wear a dragon ring, you give off the vibe of a courageous, wise and generous person. Wearing dragon rings can be a style and fashion statement for young and middle-aged people, while older people see them as a symbol of prosperity and success in life. Now, of course there are many kinds of dragons as each culture has its own vision of the legendary beast. So let's take a closer look at these different dragons.
Eastern Dragons (Chinese 🇨🇳 , Japanese 🇯🇵 , Korean 🇰🇷 ...)
Dragons have a big role in many Asian cultures, probably more than anywhere else in the world. For instance, dragon is the most prestigious and sought after Chinese zodiac sign (so much that there is a peak in birth rate on the year of the dragon in China!). Dragons are worshiped and many temples honoring them can be found throughout Asia. But what about dragons themselves? Well, their appearance, powers and nature is very different from the Western idea of what a dragon is. First of all, Eastern dragons are benevolent and good hearted creatures. They control water 🌊 and help humans by providing rain for their agriculture. It is also thought that if you ever see a dragon, you'll be blessed with great luck for the rest of your life...
So in terms of symbolism, a Chinese dragon ring represents strength, wisdom and balance.
Oh, by the way, if you're interested in learning more about Chinese dragons, we've written a pretty cool article on the topic: History & Legends of the Chinese Dragon. And if you're in for some epic stories about dragons in Japanese culture, here's our post about: The legends of Japan's most Famous Dragons.
Western Dragons (also known as European dragons 🇪🇺 )
In most Western countries, dragons are often seen as very powerful and dangerous creatures. Even though some "good" dragons exist in western stories, the dragon is more often the villain of the story and the ultimate opponent that the hero will have to defeat in his quest. European dragons are associated with fire 🔥 as opposed to Asian dragons which are water creatures. As such they are extremely strong, often short tampered and capable of unleashing great deals of destruction and chaos on those crazy enough to defy them.
As a result, a Western dragon ring is a symbol of pure strength, fighting spirit and relentless determination.
Viking Dragons ⚔️
In Viking mythology, dragons are very important. Probably the most well-known of them is Nidhogg, a gigantic, snake-like creature which is a the center of an endless battle between good and evil happening at the roots of the tree of life: Yggdrasil. This battle is actually crucial in Norse mythology as it fuels the cycle of life (destruction is a necessary step to creation and growth in Viking culture). Another famous dragon is Jormungandr, the archenemy of Thor which he will have to defeat in the apocalyptic and final battle of Ragnarok to save humanity.
Dragons are among the most powerful creatures of Norse mythology, as such, a Viking dragon ring is perfect for people with strong and bold personalities. It's also a great way to show your interest in this epic civilization of warrior that was the Viking people!
Celtic Dragons 🕈
The role of dragons in Celtic culture is quite special. The flow of energy is a central concept for the Celts. Dragons are thought to influence their environment by charging it with positive energy. As a result, it is thought that places were dragons live are especially favorable for health, agriculture and spirituality. These places are called "dragon lines" of which the most famous one is Stonehenge...
When it comes to symbolism, Celtic dragon rings represent inner peace, knowledge and mystery.
