The story of the history and customs of Couple Promise Rings: their origins and meanings of love and commitment

The oldest symbol of love and commitment to the future rings used to mark marriage proposals weren't always as they are today. They have changed over the decades.

The wedding ring, like the engagement ring is a symbol for an eternal love and devotion that signifies the union of the bride and groom during their wedding ceremony. The ring, which is traditionally worn on the left ring finger, is a constant reminder of the vows and promises made. What is the meaning of wedding rings and where do they come from?



The history behind wedding rings

The reed of ancient Egypt

The history of wedding bands is as old as Egypt. They were believed to be an indication of eternity because of their shape, which is a circle with no beginning nor an end. The Egyptians created rings from woven reeds and rushes. Like us, they positioned the ring on the ring finger of the left hand because they believed a vein called "vena Amoris" (vein for love) was directly connected to their heart.

Iron during ancient Rome

The Romans also adopted the custom of the wedding ring... however, it was made of metal, in order to mark marriages. Wedding rings were made of iron, a symbol of the strength and durability of the union. Rings were used to show the love and friendship of the couple.

Wedding ring traditions over the ages

What alliance did gold silver, and bronze signify and for whom?

Wedding rings during the Middle Ages were often decorated with precious gemstones and engravings. Gold wedding rings were reserved for the wealthiest families, while those in the lower classes wore bronze or silver rings.

Renaissance design

The Renaissance saw the development of new designs and shapes for wedding rings. Rings were typically decorated with intricate patterns and precious stones. Diamonds are often set into wedding rings to symbolize purity and eternal love.

Modernity was a brisk breeze in the 20th century.

White and platinum wedding bands became popular in the 20th century. The designs were simplified and cleaner to reflect the modernist trends at the time. Engagement rings with solitaire diamonds too have gained popularity.

Wedding ring traditions of today

Wedding rings are available in a variety of metals, styles and designs. Wedding rings are created from precious metals such as gold, platinum, and silver. However, titanium, tungsten, and ceramic rings are also available. Simple rings are available in a variety of styles with intricate patterns and gemstones. Certain traditions remain, such as exchanging wedding rings and wearing the ring left-handed.
