What was the average engagement ring and wedding band cost two years ago? $5,200 for an engagement ring and $1,126 for wedding bands for brides – a wedding ring for the groom had an average price tag of just $491. The most popular forms of engagement rings were round (53 percent), princess (30 percent) and made of white gold (73 percent). Of course, it doesn’t take the average groom a couple of hours to find the perfect ring. Instead, it took roughly three months for the man to locate a ring that was just perfect for his bride-to-be.
Though at times in ancient Rome there was the custom where the wedding ring was symbolized as the mark of the domination of men over women. It was the representative denoting that the woman who accepts the ring from a man is bound to that man for her life time and she thereon to be treated as his property. This concept of commodification of women is no longer associated with the wedding ring but in its place it has turned into a symbol of love and trust upon each other. Therefore the wedding ring is considered to be a symbol of loving memories these days.
”A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person,” said American author Mignon McLaughlin. Although there are pessimists when it comes to the topic of love and marriage, millions of people all over the world make that giant leap to spending and sharing the rest of their lives with one person. Getting married is one of the happiest times in a person’s life. Finding your true love, getting married and wearing a ring to signify your commitment to the other person is a romantic idea and one that has been kept a tradition for decades, even in our neoteric, cynical society.
