History Of  Wedding Rings

The norm of presenting wedding bands to each other is an ancient tradition.  Neanderthals are thought to have to tied twigs, grass and rushes around the bride’s wrists or ankles and regarded this not only as a sign of loyalty and friendship.   It was also believed that by doing so the wife’s soul would remain intact and that she would live longer. The first evidence of modern wedding rings was found in Egyptian civilization dating back more than 3000 years.  Ancient hierogylphs depict scenes where the bride and groom are offering each other braided rings.  At that time, the woven ring made of reed or hemp served as a custom wedding ring.

Because such materials were not durable, they were eventually replaced by comparatively longer lasting materials like leather and ivory. All wedding rings were custom back then!  And a custom wedding ring was meant to depict a person’s social status as well as love and commitment for the relationship to be established.  Egyptians believed, offering a custom wedding ring to their spouse will make their bond eternal.  That is why, the bands are round in shape. A circle has no end or start and symbolizing the endless love between the bride and groom.

Jewelry Evolves As We Do

As the culture evolved and advanced materials were discovered, the adornments also made a shift. The jewelry progressed from ivory to metals with the invention of metallurgy. The Romans were first to use iron rings which lead to today’s modern metal based bands. In roman culture, a bride was presented a custom wedding ring made of iron. Since, iron is a durable metal, it was meant to be a symbol of power and durability for a relationship. They wore their custom wedding ring on the last finger of left hand because it contained the vein of love.

An important progression in the history of the custom wedding ring was Christian marriage ceremony. During the recitation of prayer, the priest used to touch his thumb, forefinger, and middle finger while.  To make a seal of love he would place the ring on adjacent finger while saying “amen”.  From 15th to 17th century, the custom wedding ring went through a transformation.  Wedding rings were a thing for the rich at the time and it became the style for the bride and groom to wear fancy rings with interlocking bands.  When the wedding day came, the groom intertwined his band with the bride’s ring. This depicted the union of the future husband and wife.

Engagement Ring Vs The  Wedding Ring

There is one main difference between a wedding ring and an engagement ring. An engagement ring is usually selected by just one partner to propose to the other with. Once the proposal is made the female companion wears it.  Usually, the giving of the engagement ring a surprise.  However, for a custom wedding ring, the scenario is totally different. It is not selected by a single spouse.   Both partners are involved in selecting a ring for the other partner. Moreover, rather than surprise, a custom wedding ring is a symbol of ceremony and celebration. After receiving an engagement ring, the future bride will wear it till by itself until the wedding day. After the wedding, the bride then places her wedding band above her engagement ring.

The cost of engagement or wedding bands vary considerably depending upon the material, design, and style.  However, normally an engagement ring costs much more than the wedding band. This is typically because diamond or gemstones in the engagement ring is can be costly.
