What Does Wearing a Black Silicone Ring Symbolize?

Black silicone rings have become very popular to wear among all ages and genders. Enso Rings sells a variety of black silicone rings for all occasions and purposes. But what does a black silicone ring mean? Is there symbolism behind it, or is the reasoning for wearing a black silicone ring as individual as the person who is wearing it?

What Does Black Mean?

You may think of black as a dark color, but as you may have learned in school, it’s not a color at all: It’s the absence of light. Since light is associated with knowledge, openness and sometimes God, this might be the reason black is often linked with sinister pursuits.

A black widow spider, for instance, is feared for its venomous fangs. But the spider has no choice in its color, and some of the deadliest creatures on earth are the beautiful and colorful poisonous dart frogs.

If you’re the black sheep of the family, you’re considered an embarrassment to your clan. The Black Plague was certainly unpleasant, so named for the lesions that would form on the victims’ lymph nodes. Obsessed with horror, Edgar Allen Poe’s poem The Raven (a black bird) is terrifying, and his story The Black Cat is even worse. The black market is illegal, but most people like it for one thing or another — videos, cigarettes, alcohol, fireworks, pharmaceuticals.

The Avengers have the Black Panther (good) and the Black Widow (bad). Everyone loves a black Lab, but these same people avoid black cats. In a bar, you can order a Black Russian (vodka and Kahlua), or if you like your drinks tempered with cream, you can get a White Russian.

When Black Is Good

All these negative connotations related to black have not been lost on Black people, who are unsurprisingly not very happy about it. Thus, in the 1960s, a catchphrase to counteract all this hostility was created: Black is Beautiful.

Black is the color you choose when you’re going to a fancy, upscale event. Women have a go-to little black dress for parties. Men wear black tuxes to weddings. Black velvet is considered a luxurious fabric. For clothing, black is known as sleek, sophisticated and modern.

Both the Black Crowes and the Black Eyed Peas were loved and hugely successful bands. AC/DC’s Back in Black is a classic rock anthem. Limousines — the ultimate in opulence — are black.

Chocolate is a beloved food — the darker the better. People say, “black as coal,” and for many years, it was coal that heated our homes and kept us alive throughout the cold winters. Black-eyed Susans are cheerful flowers. All the coolest parties in the 1970s had black lights. Obsidian and onyx are prized gemstones used to make beautiful, expensive jewelry.

Why Black Silicone Rings?

As you can see, the reasons for wearing black silicone rings are endless. Some people may choose to wear simple black silicone bands to mark the death of a loved one or an important figure. Others just like it as a fashion statement. But the main reason people wear them is because they love them. Black is great because it’s basic and it goes with everything. It’s unobtrusive and hangs quietly in the background.
