For many years, it was thought that diamonds worn on the left hand would ward off evil spirits and they signified betrothal to the public. Finally, those who could afford it began to call it a diamond engagement ring. The popularity of the diamond engagement ring really began to take off in 1938 when the advertising slogan, Diamonds are Forever, was coined and when De Beers introduced the control system that successfully worked as diamonds were withheld from the market by way of a monopoly. In the early 20th century, one of the chairman of De Beers Diamond Mining Corporation optimistically predicted that the diamond trade would prosper, ”so long as men are foolish and women are vain.”
With the absence of the wedding ring on prince’s hand, don’t get your mind to thinking that their marriage is in trouble. The royal couple is very much in love and has been enjoying the matrimonial bliss for five years now. But then, what is it that made the prince not wear a ring despite being happily married to the love of his life and mother of his kids? The reason is pretty simple – personal preference. Before the couple’s wedding in 2011, a report in Time stated that the prince will not wear a ring because of ”personal preference.”It was something the couple discussed but Prince William isn’t one for jewellery,” a Palace aide said.
The popular choices in men’s Diamond rings include a solitaire ring and a five stone ring. Solitaire is by far the most sought after ring type for both men and women. You can also go for a thick metal band with three, six or nine stones encrusted on it. It is very important to consider the 4 C’s (cut, colour, carat weight and clarity) of Diamond before buying a ring. They play an important role in determining the quality and price of the ring.
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.
Wedding ceremony is celebrated differently in different countries and like that ring ceremony is also not similar. There are some customs where wedding ring is worn on their right ring finger and there are some countries where wedding ring is worn on their left ring finger. Another option is to have the main bridesmaid keep the ring during the ceremony – there are a variety of ways to keep it: in a pouch, on a plate, etc. After the ceremony, the ring can be placed back on either the left or the right hand.
