Like so many time honored traditions, the giving of an engagement ring can trace its roots back to Ancient Egypt, where its circular shape was said to symbolize an eternal cycle.  It was worn on the fourth finger of the left hand, where it was believed there was a vein that led straight to the heart.  This began the idea of the ring finger, which is still valid today across many cultures.  Several centuries later, in 1477, the tradition of diamond engagement rings began, when Archduke Maximillian of Austria presented Mary of Burgundy with a delicate band adorned with diamonds in the shape of her first initial – winning her hand and heart over another suitor. It would still be 100’s of years before engagement rings would become common, but the seed had been planted.

Custom Solitaire Engagement Rings – A Short History

In the beginning,  this habit was largely limited to the wealthy. However, the practice gradually became more bourgeois as a result of the discovery of vast diamond mines in South Africa in the mid 1900’s.  Thanks to a marketing campaign led by a South African diamond company that was represented in the United States, this practice spread more and more.

While the tradition of expressing commitment between a couple has varied throughout the ages 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.

Custom Solitaire Engagement Rings –  The Significance of the Engagement Ring

Going back to the 2nd center BC, the ancient Romans are believed to have started the tradition of betrothal rings in lieu of giving the bride money or a valuable object. But its symbolism wasn’t so much about love as it was ownership.   Slaves were also forced to wear items designating them as someone’s property.  Initially, 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 Solitaire Engagement Rings.

The Significance of the Diamond Engagement Ring

The idea that diamonds are forever makes them an ideal stone to represent the love between a couple.  However, diamonds aren’t necessary to create Custom Solitaire Engagement Rings.  Colored gemstones such as Emerald, Tanzanite, or Moissanite make excellent choices for solitaire engagement rings that symbolize the eternal union between lovers.  And obviously stones like Opal or even Moonstone can’t be forgotten! We want our Custom Solitaire Engagement Rings to symbolize this eternal union and so we won’t limit your vision by only offering a few stone choices.  Luckily, we have excellent colored stone sources from Thailand, where most colored gemstones are cut.
