So, next time, don’t judge the marital status of a male by the absence of ring on his finger and always remember that wearing one or not wearing one can be a personal choice unaffected by the societal norms. By now, you know who in the royal family wears a ring and who doesn’t but do you also know about the fact that there’s a tradition according to which the young boys belonging to the upper class, aristocracy and royals are supposed to wear shorts and not doing so is considered ”suburban”. And if you have guessed that this is why Prince George is always seen in shorts, give yourself a pat on the back because you are absolutely right. So, in this case, it is not his choice but the tradition.
Grooms are also shopping around. It was reported that more than one-third (35 percent) purchased at least part of the ring from a nationally-recognized jewelry chain, while 39 percent purchased at least some of the ring at a local or independent jewelry shop. They aren’t heading online, though: only nine percent responded that they bought a ring for their bride from an online retailer.
Due to the belief that a diamond engagement ring was a calming agent between man and wife, it was recommended as the stone to be set in wedding or engagement rings – not because of its beauty. It was described by Isidore of Seville as a small stone devoid of beauty. When you see a rough diamond, it could be easily mistaken for a piece of sea glass that has been roughened up by the waves on a beach for years.
Another important statistic is that even in this economy the groom hasn’t downsized the ring. In fact, only 14 percent of grooms admitted that they purchased an inferior ring due to the negative economic climate – about one-quarter of grooms said they spent more than they originally budgeted for. It is true that white gold is still as popular as ever, but a significant number of couples are studying alternative metals. For instance, in 2011, more than one-quarter (27 percent) of grooms opted for tungsten and 16 percent decided to buy a titanium ring.
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.
