These two rings are the pillars of a woman’s life. She will take as much pride in them as she would in the other important aspects. Though due to personal choices or latest fashion trends the lines between wedding ring and engagement ring often get blurred however, there are certain differences by the way of which the jewelry stores display them differently. Both constitute the bridal jewelry and often women even choose to wear both the engagement ring and the wedding band together on the ring finger of the left hand.
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.
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.
Style. The style also adds to the beauty of the ring. There is a range of styles to choose from. You can choose a vintage style ring that expresses your cultural heritage or chunky, modern ring with intricate designs. If you’ve always loved to stand out in the crowd, opt for an unusual style wedding band. It could be a Goth band, horseshoe styled bands, dolphin rings and dragon bands.
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.
