Other takeaways from the study: a majority of grooms (77 percent) are still proposing on a bended knee, 71 percent seek to attain permission from the lady’s parents, a little more than half (57 percent) of grooms proposed privately – this fact shows a growing number of public proposals – and a growing number of grooms (five percent) are now wearing ”man-gagement rings.” For some, it might seem to be a waste to purchase an expensive wedding ring, but for others they see it quite differently: a symbol of how important that person means to them. Remember, wearing a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand originated from the Romans, who believed the vein from that finger ran to their heart.
The Egyptians were the first recorded civilization to use the wedding ring. In Egyptian hieroglyphics a circle represented eternity. Once a woman accepted the ring she became the ”property” of the person who gave it to her and she was in a sense ”his.” The first wedding ring could have been made of braided grass or hay (which would have been changed often), ivory, bone, or leather. Eventually, metal was used, but the first wedding bands were crude and lumpy. However, the sentiment remained the same-eternal commitment and love.
In 2011, TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com published an in-depth report on engagement and wedding statistics in the United States. It looked at how much the engagement ring and wedding jewelry is worth, what kind of rings the grooms are purchasing and how people are proposing nowadays. ”Jewelry is a significant part of the wedding experience and the 2011 Engagement & Jewelry Study provides unparalleled insight into the multibillion-dollar industry,” said Kristyn Clement, Senior Director of The Knot Market Intelligence at XO Group Inc.
The institution of marriage has undergone several changes over the years, but the exchange of rings continues to remain an important marital rite. The wedding ceremony is incomplete without it as those thin, seamless bands worn on the ring finger on the left hand are not mere pieces of jewelry; they are replete with symbolism. They stand for enduring and immortal love. You will wear your wedding ring for the rest of your life. Hence, choose an ornament that not only reflects your marital commitment but also your personal style and taste. Here are tips to choose a set of timeless wedding rings for the bride and the groom.
Some men assume that selecting a wedding ring for themselves is pretty much a case of grabbing the first wedding band off the shelf that fits your finger.

Read on for some tips on how to select a wedding ring that is going to last the test of time.
