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.
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.
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.
