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.
In many areas of Africa, revolutionary groups have taken over some of the diamond mines using proceeds to finance their illegal operations. These diamonds are referred to as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. The United Nations instituted a system of controlling diamonds that were taken from these groups by insisting that all of the legal diamonds must be accompanied by a certificate of sale as they moved through the system but the system has not worked well. Today, these blood diamonds total less than 2% of the overall market share.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton is a name almost all of us are familiar with. Credited as the Fashionista, she flaunts one of the most iconic rings of the world, but have you ever paid attention to her dear hubby, Duke of Cambridge, Prince William’s ring? Well, the prince doesn’t wear a wedding ring. Yes! That’s right, if you go through the prince’s many thousands of pictures online, you will notice that there isn’t a single picture where he is wearing a ring on his hand. Neither is he a fan of any kind of jewellery.
