Key rings have been an important part of our lives since a long time even before the plastic and metal keyrings which are produced now started to produce. People used to use pieces of cloth to make a ring like a knot or something to keep sorted. So we can say a keyring was not really invented but discovered a common man like all of us.
What actually a key ring is?
A key ring can be defined as a small chain, most of times made of metal or plastic that connects a small thing to the ring of the key. That small thing can be something artistic or something very common like a miniature of a shoe.
A keychain is most common keep sake or a souvenir a person can have. They have also been used as advertising items; they have been commonly used to promote businesses. A standard promotional keychain for a business would usually have the business name or the company name and its logo if any.
