The bridal ring has a history that spans many centuries and through many countries from around the world. Let’s learn a brief history of marriage and engagement rings in various countries around the world.
The first wedding rings are from Ancient Egypt, where a plant was built in a circle symbolic of eternity and love that never ends. Egyptian thought the ring finger, as it is now known, is connected directly to the heart. This is why the fourth finger became official ring finger.
Romans, like the Egyptians thought that the fourth finger is directly connected to the heart, but they did not offer the engagement ring as a symbol of love. In Rome, it was believed that the ring meant female ownership.
In Europe, engagement rings were called Poesy Rings. A Poesy Ring was given to one you loved as a symbol of the promise of perpetual togetherness.
Wedding, anniversary and engagement rings are not made of hair, grass or other plants like that in ancient times, but from the most precious of metals, like yellow or white gold, platinum, or palladium. These small pieces of jewelry seem to remain popular forever, because it is difficult to imagine a marriage or engagement without beautiful wedding rings.
