There is no rule that states that bishop's rings must be ornate. Clergymen who prefer to wear a ring that is simple and not ostentatious will appreciate the beauty of the Artistic Silver bishops ring, item number 764 at Matthew F. Sheehan's. Artistic Silver of Spain has crafted a beautiful bishop's ring that is available in sterling silver of sterling gold plate and set with a semi-precious amethyst stone. These rings are a slight step ahead of a plain gold band because of the amethyst stone, but the sides have no symbols or markings which is similar to gold bands. Bishop's rings play an important role in the bishop's attire as wearing a bishop's ring is considered a privilege and a reminder to all of the wearer's commitment to the church.
