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.
Colored stones aren’t new to these rings however they have become more preferred in the recent times. Other designs include three stoned ring which have not one but three diamonds set together. Wedding bands are the ones which are exchanged by the couple during their wedding ceremony. In the past they were just meant for the girl, but these days an exchange is preferred. It’s generally a single gold or platinum band without any seam to mark the sanctity of marriage and the bond that will bring two people together sealed by love. These days bands encrusted with diamonds or some intricate carvings are also used.
