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.
The final decision is based around metal choice; ranging in price from platinum, white gold or yellow gold. All have their benefits and challenges but it is likely that your choice will be influenced not only by budget but by what existing jewellery your loved one is wearing. Choosing an engagement ring may be a once in a lifetime event, however, time invested on finding a quality handmade local jeweller will result in an established relationship, likely to last a lifetime. This relationship will allow confidence and trust in purchasing wedding bands, anniversary jewellery and subsequent gifts.
Colored stones aren’t new to these rings however they have become more preferred in the recent times. Other designs include three stoned ring which have not one but three diamonds set together. Wedding bands are the ones which are exchanged by the couple during their wedding ceremony. In the past they were just meant for the girl, but these days an exchange is preferred. It’s generally a single gold or platinum band without any seam to mark the sanctity of marriage and the bond that will bring two people together sealed by love. These days bands encrusted with diamonds or some intricate carvings are also used.
