You will be amazed to know that he is not the only male royal without a wedding band. Other than him, his grandfather, Prince Philip who has been married to the queen for 69 years, also doesn’t wear a ring and if you see photo timeline of their marriage, you will notice that he hasn’t for many years. Surprised? Well, don’t be, because men did not wear rings earlier, it was only during World War II that they started wearing rings as a reminder of their family back at home, while they were away fighting for their respective countries. It’s the women who have been wearing rings since the Egyptian times.
Engagement rings are not as expensive as wedding rings, but are equally as important as they mark the first official step towards your new life. They also usually have a vastly different design from wedding rings, often solver with a diamond on top. The fact that they come at a fraction of the price is hugely advantageous as it means that you can afford to go all out on the wedding rings whilst still getting something beautiful.
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.”
