The Egyptians wore the wedding ring on the left hand because it was believed that a vein in the left hand went straight to the heart. This tradition is still commonly practiced today in most parts of the world largely for practical purposes (most people are right handed.) It is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. But there are some countries and groups which do not follow this tradition. In the Jewish faith, the wedding ring is put on the index finger. Roman Catholics traditionally wore their wedding band on the right hand, and in many countries and regions in Europe some people still follow this tradition.
Types of engagement ring include Cathedral, which features a raised gemstone, Halo, which features one large diamond surrounded by many smaller ones, and Solitaire, arguably the most popular variety, which carries one large, magnificent diamond. As you have no doubt realized, they are more extravagant than wedding rings, so you can really choose something to match your partner’s personality. This is your chance to really make them shine. Many shops will also allow you to have a meeting where they will personally discuss how to choose the perfect ring, because they recognize just how vital it is to get right. And with so many different types, there is bound to be something to everyone’s liking.
The Egyptians were the first recorded civilization to use the wedding ring. In Egyptian hieroglyphics a circle represented eternity. Once a woman accepted the ring she became the ”property” of the person who gave it to her and she was in a sense ”his.” The first wedding ring could have been made of braided grass or hay (which would have been changed often), ivory, bone, or leather. Eventually, metal was used, but the first wedding bands were crude and lumpy. However, the sentiment remained the same-eternal commitment and love.
