Custom Diamond Engagement Rings
In 1477, Archduke Maximillian of Austria presented Mary of Burgundy with a delicate gold ring accented with diamonds in the shape of her first initial – winning her hand and heart over another suitor. He had no clue what he was doing, but with that engagement ring, he started a tradition that is expected of almost every groom in the west: the giving of Diamond Engagement Rings. It would be 100’s of years before engagement rings would become readily available to the masses, but the seed had been planted.
At first, this tradition was only afforded by the aristocracy or rich merchants. However, the practice gradually became more bourgeois in the mid 1900’s as a result of the discovery of vast diamond reserves in South Africa. This in turn led a South African diamond company that was represented in the United States to market diamonds and diamond jewelry. As a result, the giving of diamond engagement rings practice spread faster than gossip in a salon..
While the act of expressing commitment between a couple has varied throughout history and across cultures, by the 1930s, the diamond engagement ring had become the go to symbol for the eternal union between a man and a woman. It was around this time that DeBeers began marketing diamond engagement rings in the US and the “A Diamond is Forever” slogan was born a few years later. That was one of the most successful marketing campaigns ever undertaken and was used for almost 40 years. It is also attributed to the the almost 95% market share in terms of types of stones used in engagement rings.
Custom Diamond Engagement Rings – The Significance of the Engagement Ring
The Romans started the tradition of betrothal rings in he 2nd century BC in lieu of giving the bride money or a valuable object. But the symbolism of the ring was more about ownership that it was a sign of love. Even slaves were forced to wear necklaces designating them as someone’s property. For hundreds of years, these betrothal rings were gold, silver, and and steel as these were the metals of the day. But today, gold, silver and platinum are used more because steel doesn’t lend itself to today’s Custom Diamond Engagement Rings. It also just isn’t very pretty, nor can you set stones in it.
The belief that diamonds are forever makes them the ideal stone to represent the eternal love between a couple. We want our Custom Diamond Engagement Rings to symbolize this eternal union and so we put the same effort into our Custom Diamond Engagement Rings as if we were making them for ourselves.
