Wedding bands are not just a popular choice for couples who are exchanging their wedding vows but are also full of symbolism.
Wedding bands have been worn since ancient Egypt, when they were woven from plants that grew alongside the river Nile. They were later incorporated into the Christian and Jewish wedding ceremonies, and it therefore became common for the bride and groom to be given a ring when she got married.
Bands are today worn forever,
The circle of the wedding band is also a symbol of eternity. The circle has no beginning or no end and is therefore a symbol of infinity. Traditionally, the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This is because the vein in the finger was believed to lead directly to the wearer's heart.
Plain gold wedding bands are usually considered the traditional form of wedding ring. These rings became popular because of their simple and practical style. They are still commonly worn, particularly by people who lead active lifestyles or who need a ring that can easily be kept clean.
Diamonds are a popular stone for wedding bands because of their beauty and their significance. Diamonds have been associated with eternity because of their enduring nature, and they have also been associated with love. This makes them the perfect stone to symbolise the love of a married couple. Other precious stones may also be worn on wedding bands, either on their own or alongside diamonds.
