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 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.
Firstly, the big question: should you go shopping for an engagement ring on your own or with your future spouse? Obviously going alone means that you can surprise them, Going together obviously means that you will lose the element of surprise, but at the same time it means that you can make it an experience to remember as you both go about planning your future of happiness together. Also, remember, that no matter how well you may know your partner, there will always be a chance, even a remote one, that you may end up buying something that they do not like. And as it will be something that they will be wearing for a long time, it does appear to be best to let them come along as you choose it.
