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.
Though at times in ancient Rome there was the custom where the wedding ring was symbolized as the mark of the domination of men over women. It was the representative denoting that the woman who accepts the ring from a man is bound to that man for her life time and she thereon to be treated as his property. This concept of commodification of women is no longer associated with the wedding ring but in its place it has turned into a symbol of love and trust upon each other. Therefore the wedding ring is considered to be a symbol of loving memories these days.
This style of wedding rings is not as widely spread as tradition channel set rings. But they are becoming more popular in recent years because of their elegant beauty. The reason they are called tension set is because the stone is hold in place by tension. In tension set engagement rings and wedding rings a stone is set in an opening in the ring itself and held by tension of the open ends of the ring. This style gives your stone a better exposure.
