People in Old Kingdom Egypt wore a variety of finger rings, of which a few examples have been found, including the famous scarab design. Rings became more common during the Egyptian middle kingdom, with increasingly complex designs.
Archaic Greek rings were to some extent influenced by Egyptian rings, although they tended to be less substantial and apparently weren’t for the most part used as working signet rings. The classical period showed a shift away from bronze to wider adoption of silver and gold.
During the early and middle imperial era (first two centuries AD) the closest there is to a typical Roman ring consisted of a thick hoop that tapered directly into a slightly wider bezel. An engraved oval gem would be embedded within the bezel with the top of the gem only rising slightly above the surrounding ring material.
