Keeper Ring - Antique Jewelry University ---  In jewelry a keeper ring is a close fitting ring of simple design which is worn on the finger to prevent another - more valuable - ring from sliding off that finger. When the diamond ring became the popular love token in the mid-18th century, keeper rings were worn to protect the larger more costly diamond ring. As the diamond ring morphed into a betrothal ring (c.19th century) the keeper became more elaborate and evolved into the wedding band.
