Rings

Why Rings are The Symbol of Love

Rings are one of the most easily recognized symbols of love that we have. From engagement rings to wedding rings, friendship rings and even promise rings, these small pieces of jewelry represent permanent joining. The tradition of exchanging rings for marriage dates back to ancient Egyptian civilization. In ancient Egypt, the plants that grow on the banks of the river Nile were used to fashion the first wedding rings.

For the ancient Egyptians as well as for many other cultures, both ancient and modern, the circle shape of the ring symbolized eternity. Just like time, a ring has no beginning and no end. The ancients worshiped this symbol in both the moon and the sun. Rings have not only a circle, though, they also have a hole in the center. This symbolized for many cultures a gateway leading to events known and unknown. Obviously, the ring therefore became the perfect symbol of love. Love opens a gateway into a future that was not always easily predictable, and love is of course meant to last forever.

Both the ancients and later the Greeks believed that the third finger of the left hand had a vein that traveled directly to and from the heart. The Romans called it the'vena amoris', which translated means "the vein of love." It is for this reason that engagement rings, wedding rings, and anniversary rings are worn on this finger.

Early rings did not last long, and often had to be replaced after a year or two, since they were not made of durable materials. Eventually, as civilizations began to use metals, they began to use metals to craft wedding rings and other types of rings. The early rings tended to be very clunky, because the tools used to fashion them were often not designed for precise work. Therefore, semi precious and precious stones were set into them or designs were carved into them to make them appear more beautiful. We still have the practice of adding precious stones such as diamonds to our engagement rings, wedding rings, and anniversary rings today.

Over time, precious metals came to be de rigueur for many rings. In fact, some merchants and trades people used rings as a type of currency before money was officially printed and coins were stamped. Merchants kept their rings concealed on their person or beneath their clothing, and produced the rings when it was time to purchase an item. Today, luckily, we can wear our rings proudly on our hands. Modern technology has allowed us to choose from an array of stunning engagement rings and other types of rings. From yellow gold rings to white gold rings to rings made of just about every sort of material, rings come in a variety of styles and shapes. From the simplest of the most ornate, from the most modern to the most traditional, you can certainly select the ring that will please you the most. And today's rings will last for generations to come and will provide a dazzling heirloom to pass on to future generations.

However, knowing where the customs of giving rings come from and knowing their rich tradition may make you appreciate wedding rings a little bit more.

Princess Cut DiamondDiamonds are among the most prized substances on earth. The name "diamond" comes from the Greek word "adamastos," meaning "invincible."
The value of a stone is determined by the "4 Cs" of cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
The cut is the factor that defines the brilliance of a diamond. Round brilliant cut is considered the "ideal" shape for a diamond because it maximizes a stone's sparkle.
Color indicates to the presence or absence of color in white diamonds. Colorless and near-colorless diamonds are the most valuable. There are even fancy natural colored diamonds in reds, pinks, blues, greens, yellows, browns and other colors. Fancies are valued for their depth of color.
Clarity of a diamond is based on the presence of surface or internal flaws within a diamond caused during its formation or during the cutting process. The fewer inclusions the diamond has, the more valuable the diamond will be.

DiamondDiamonds are among the most prized substances on earth. The name "diamond" comes from the Greek word "adamastos," meaning "invincible."
The value of a stone is determined by the "4 Cs" of cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
The cut is the factor that defines the brilliance of a diamond. Round brilliant cut is considered the "ideal" shape for a diamond because it maximizes a stone's sparkle.
Color indicates to the presence or absence of color in white diamonds. Colorless and near-colorless diamonds are the most valuable. There are even fancy natural colored diamonds in reds, pinks, blues, greens, yellows, browns and other colors. Fancies are valued for their depth of color.
Clarity of a diamond is based on the presence of surface or internal flaws within a diamond caused during its formation or during the cutting process. The fewer inclusions the diamond has, the more valuable the diamond will be.
