Most people know that a wedding ring is symbolic of the bond of love and commitment between two people. But not everyone knows about the history behind this small yet powerful symbol. The history of the wedding ring goes back not just hundreds but thousands of years. No other currently practiced wedding tradition has been around as long.
Engagement rings are purchased when a man chooses to tell that special someone that he is ready to bind their life together and gets a ring to symbolize and seal his affection. Traditionally a ring for engagement consists of a prominent center stone studded in a yellow or white gold band. Sometimes there are smaller stones to grace the big one in a certain kind of pattern. Mostly the first choice for a wedding ring is a diamond but these days rubies, emeralds, sapphires and tanzanite are also being used. The center stone mostly has the maximum prominence in the ring and is the crowning glory; it may be a single one like a solitaire. A solitaire ring is often the way a woman envisions her engagement ring, that towering rock with all its brilliance is what will surely take her breath away.
It is interesting to note that in the long history of the wedding ring that it is only in the last century that men have begun to wear them. However, now both men and women show their love and commitment by exchanging rings on their wedding day. Once you begin shopping for rings you may be amazed by the choices that await you. There are several different types of metals: traditional gold, white gold, platinum, and titanium. You can have an inscription put on the inside of the band if you like. Some people are even choosing a tattoo band. The styles vary from a simple, yet elegant band to an elaborate ring covered with jewels. If you do not buy the wedding and engagement rings as a set you will want to be sure the styles are compatible. Choose carefully because this choice will need to stand the test of eternity.
When it comes to getting married, every small detail should be absolutely perfect to ensure that you big day goes as well as possible, After all, it will end up being one of the best if not the best day of your life. When it comes to rings, picking a wedding ring can be hard enough, but picking an engagement ring to go along with it can be something of a nightmare. But don’t worry, just remember that, along with everything else about the wedding, choosing the engagement ring should be something that you should cherish and enjoy.
The final decision is based around metal choice; ranging in price from platinum, white gold or yellow gold. All have their benefits and challenges but it is likely that your choice will be influenced not only by budget but by what existing jewellery your loved one is wearing. Choosing an engagement ring may be a once in a lifetime event, however, time invested on finding a quality handmade local jeweller will result in an established relationship, likely to last a lifetime. This relationship will allow confidence and trust in purchasing wedding bands, anniversary jewellery and subsequent gifts.
