Most people know that a wedding ring is symbolic of the bond of love and commitment between two people. But not everyone knows about the history behind this small yet powerful symbol. The history of the wedding ring goes back not just hundreds but thousands of years. No other currently practiced wedding tradition has been around as long.
Engraving. Engraving allows you to personalize your wedding rings. Messages are engraved on the inner side of the ring. Engraving your names and the date of your wedding is a classic trend that will never grow old. If you are restricted on space, you can only write the initials. Many modern day brides and grooms have gone one step ahead to engrave words with important meanings, quotes and phrases on love, a phrase from a song (our song), nicknames, religious scriptures or symbols of true love.
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.”
