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.
Men’s wedding rings became popular during the Second World War and have seen no decline in demand since then. A wedding ring has become an essential piece of jewellery for men in present times. Wedding rings for men have come a long way since then. The traditional plain bands are now being replaced by stylish Diamond rings. Like women, men too are in love with the sophistication and sparkle of Diamonds.
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.
Also, when you are choosing wedding rings for women, you need to make sure that you have the correct size of the ring. You don’t want to have a ring that is too small for your bride on the big day. Get her finger measured just to be on the safe side and avoid any last-minute rush or embarrassment. Make sure you take your time in deciding what kind of ring you want to buy for your bride. Before buying, speak to her and get an idea of what she likes so that she’s swept off her feet when you present the ring of her dreams to her on your big day!
You will be amazed to know that he is not the only male royal without a wedding band. Other than him, his grandfather, Prince Philip who has been married to the queen for 69 years, also doesn’t wear a ring and if you see photo timeline of their marriage, you will notice that he hasn’t for many years. Surprised? Well, don’t be, because men did not wear rings earlier, it was only during World War II that they started wearing rings as a reminder of their family back at home, while they were away fighting for their respective countries. It’s the women who have been wearing rings since the Egyptian times.
