Due to the belief that a diamond engagement ring was a calming agent between man and wife, it was recommended as the stone to be set in wedding or engagement rings – not because of its beauty. It was described by Isidore of Seville as a small stone devoid of beauty. When you see a rough diamond, it could be easily mistaken for a piece of sea glass that has been roughened up by the waves on a beach for years.
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.
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.
