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.
In many areas of Africa, revolutionary groups have taken over some of the diamond mines using proceeds to finance their illegal operations. These diamonds are referred to as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. The United Nations instituted a system of controlling diamonds that were taken from these groups by insisting that all of the legal diamonds must be accompanied by a certificate of sale as they moved through the system but the system has not worked well. Today, these blood diamonds total less than 2% of the overall market share.
Diamond rings for men are available in Platinum, Gold (yellow and white), Silver and Titanium. You can select the metal based upon your budget. Platinum rings are the most expensive ones and look enticing with Diamonds. Gold rings are comparatively cheaper and make the traditional choice for both men and women. These are available in 18K, 14K and 9K settings. Silver and Titanium wedding rings are cheap as well as elegant. Diamond wedding bands are a symbol of eternal love, commitment, loyalty, trust and promise. Exchanging bands on the wedding day is customary and diamond wedding rings remain the top choice for couples. Men do not feel shy these days in putting up a band on their finger. It reminds them of the promises they made on their big day.
