Diamond Wedding Rings
A wedding ring or wedding band in some parts of the country is a ring that signifies that the wearer is married. It is typically made of precious metals, commonly gold.
The use of wedding rings can be tracked down to ancient times, particularly in Rome and Greece. The wedding rings were initially related to the marital dowry and then soon with a pledge of fidelity. The first wedding rings were made of iron and had themes that symbolize that the wife is in control of the household. By the 2nd century AD, most wedding rings were made of gold.
From the 3rd century until the present, wedding rings became more luxurious and extravagant, flaunting the giver’s socioeconomic status. Rings started to have gemstones such as amethyst, carnelian, garnet, or onyx encrusted in them.
Ancient Egyptians wore the wedding ring on the left finger (fourth finger), as they believed that the said finger contained the vena amoris (vein of love) that leads straight to the heart. Ancient Romans also adopted this custom. Even though this belief is not anatomically correct, this tradition of wearing rings on the left ring finger lives on to this day.
Diamond Wedding Rings
During the Medieval era, wedding rings began to have gemstones encrusted on them. During this period, the gemstones often represent many things, such as rubies for passion, sapphires to represent the heavens, and diamonds to symbolize strength.
The first recorded diamond wedding ring can be traced back to either the late 1300s or early 1400s. An English widow left the diamond ring in her will. A poem written in 1475 about the wedding of two Italian nobles says, “Two wills, two hearts, two passions are bonded in one marriage by a diamond.”
