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.
What was the average engagement ring and wedding band cost two years ago? $5,200 for an engagement ring and $1,126 for wedding bands for brides – a wedding ring for the groom had an average price tag of just $491. The most popular forms of engagement rings were round (53 percent), princess (30 percent) and made of white gold (73 percent). Of course, it doesn’t take the average groom a couple of hours to find the perfect ring. Instead, it took roughly three months for the man to locate a ring that was just perfect for his bride-to-be.
Metal Choice. The three most widely used precious metals are yellow gold, platinum and white gold. Gold has always been the traditional choice, but its yellow undertone makes it a little tricky when it comes to coordinating it with clothing. White gold and platinum, with their silvery-white look are a better option in this regard. White gold is a cheaper alternative to the pricey platinum. When you buy metal bands, make sure you check the jewelry marking.
Style. The style also adds to the beauty of the ring. There is a range of styles to choose from. You can choose a vintage style ring that expresses your cultural heritage or chunky, modern ring with intricate designs. If you’ve always loved to stand out in the crowd, opt for an unusual style wedding band. It could be a Goth band, horseshoe styled bands, dolphin rings and dragon bands.
Types of engagement ring include Cathedral, which features a raised gemstone, Halo, which features one large diamond surrounded by many smaller ones, and Solitaire, arguably the most popular variety, which carries one large, magnificent diamond. As you have no doubt realized, they are more extravagant than wedding rings, so you can really choose something to match your partner’s personality. This is your chance to really make them shine. Many shops will also allow you to have a meeting where they will personally discuss how to choose the perfect ring, because they recognize just how vital it is to get right. And with so many different types, there is bound to be something to everyone’s liking.
