The napkin ring is used with cloth napkins and their use can be traced back hundreds of years. Napkin rings were actually used for practical purposes rather than decorative, napkin rings were used to identify the user of the napkins. Before modern technology it was not practical to do laundry every day and the same napkin was used for several meals. A napkin ring was used to identify who had used the napkin.

Today napkin rings are more for decoration. They are available in a wide variety of styles. Napkin rings may match your table setting, match the occasion or holiday or be a contrasting or complementary design.
