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.
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.
For many the starting point for purchasing a ring may well be budget setting. Conventional thought suggests that an engagement ring purchase should equal between one and two months’ salary, however, the far superior element is the thought and consideration put into finding your loved ones’ ring that they will likely wear forever.
