Many sources claim that spoon rings originated in England during the 17th century and were originally used as wedding bands.
Popular opinion suggests that servants who could not afford to have wedding rings made of precious metals would steal the silverware from the manor houses and have them turned into wedding rings. For a time you could tell who the servants were working for by the crest that appeared on their rings. So as these families reported their silverware missing, it was fairly easy to find the culprit. Needless to say, there were many arrests conducted from the 17th to the 19th century, with offences ranging from “stealing a silver spoon” to “larceny by a servant”.
