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.
For a woman the wedding band is mostly designed to match the ring as mostly they are worn together on the same finger. Design of the wedding band compliments the engagement rings. Some women also choose to wear the wedding band on the ring finger of the other hand or even the pinkie finger. An engagement ring is generally that hogs the most attention, though you might look forward to choose a larger wedding ring, as after all it is the bigger celebration. Both can be bought together as a set, some women also choose an enhancer as a wedding band, it’s meant to fit on or around the engagement ring and add to it’s beauty.
Other takeaways from the study: a majority of grooms (77 percent) are still proposing on a bended knee, 71 percent seek to attain permission from the lady’s parents, a little more than half (57 percent) of grooms proposed privately – this fact shows a growing number of public proposals – and a growing number of grooms (five percent) are now wearing ”man-gagement rings.” For some, it might seem to be a waste to purchase an expensive wedding ring, but for others they see it quite differently: a symbol of how important that person means to them. Remember, wearing a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand originated from the Romans, who believed the vein from that finger ran to their heart.
Also, when you are choosing wedding rings for women, you need to make sure that you have the correct size of the ring. You don’t want to have a ring that is too small for your bride on the big day. Get her finger measured just to be on the safe side and avoid any last-minute rush or embarrassment. Make sure you take your time in deciding what kind of ring you want to buy for your bride. Before buying, speak to her and get an idea of what she likes so that she’s swept off her feet when you present the ring of her dreams to her on your big day!
You will be amazed to know that he is not the only male royal without a wedding band. Other than him, his grandfather, Prince Philip who has been married to the queen for 69 years, also doesn’t wear a ring and if you see photo timeline of their marriage, you will notice that he hasn’t for many years. Surprised? Well, don’t be, because men did not wear rings earlier, it was only during World War II that they started wearing rings as a reminder of their family back at home, while they were away fighting for their respective countries. It’s the women who have been wearing rings since the Egyptian times.
