The Ring

The circular shape of a wedding ring symbolizes eternal and unending love for one another. The Egyptians would wear hemp rings symbolizing their marriage, but they would have to replace them often as they would breakdown. The ancient Greeks and Romans started making rings out of gold and iron. Gold rings represent purity, beauty, and strength. Ancient Egyptians believed that the vein in the left “ring finger” ran directly to the heart. Diamonds came into play in the Middle Ages, when a European design a diamond ring for his bride as a symbol of his love. Ever since the diamond has been the most associated stone in marriage.
