Diamond Engagement Rings

Overview

An engagement ring is a ring that indicates the wearer is to be married. This practice is prevalent in Western cultures. An engagement ring is typically given as a gift to a potential spouse as they propose for marriage. It symbolizes a formal agreement to a future marriage.

History

The use of engagement rings can be traced back to ancient Rome. During ancient times, an engagement ring is believed to be part of the bride price, which indicates the bride’s purchase and ownership. Early engagement rings were commonly made of metal. In the 2nd century BCE, for example, Roman brides-to-be were given two rings, a gold one, which is worn in public, and an iron one, which is worn at home while doing household obligations.

During the Renaissance era, diamond engagement rings made their debut when the Archduke Maximilian of Austria presented Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring during their betrothal. This then influenced the upper class to give diamond rings to their loved ones.

During the Victorian era, elaborate engagement rings were trendy. Diamonds were often mixed with other gemstones and enamels. These rings were typically flower-shaped and were called “posey rings.” The pairing of diamonds and other gemstones in these rings are also seen in Edwardian era engagement rings.

Decades later, in 1947, the DeBeers company introduced the slogan “A Diamond is Forever.” The ad campaign contributed to the surge in sales of diamond engagement rings. The message that “A Diamond is Forever” implied is that a marriage is forever. A diamond engagement ring also showed the level of a man’s commitment to the woman he loves.
