Rings were one of the most popular Medieval pieces of jewellery, worn by both men and women across all levels of society. The imagery of quatrefoil was used in Medieval Europe in heraldry and as a decorative motif for jewellery. Rings bearing a quatrefoil were worn as good luck charm. However, the quatrefoil became a popular motif in Christian symbology and iconography, always associated with the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
