The Egyptians were the first recorded civilization to use the wedding ring. In Egyptian hieroglyphics a circle represented eternity. Once a woman accepted the ring she became the ”property” of the person who gave it to her and she was in a sense ”his.” The first wedding ring could have been made of braided grass or hay (which would have been changed often), ivory, bone, or leather. Eventually, metal was used, but the first wedding bands were crude and lumpy. However, the sentiment remained the same-eternal commitment and love.
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.

Either way; this exciting challenge requires an understanding in order to find the engagement ring that is unique and will adequately reflect the true essence of this important milestone.
”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.
