His And Hers Promise Rings meaning and the reason why it is given as a present

Engagement ring meaning and the reason why it is given as a present

We buy it, choose it and give it as an present. Are we sure that we comprehend its significance? We will discuss its long-running history. Let's start by saying that the significance of the engagement ring, which is simple and romantic, is simple. This kind of ring symbolizes the love of a couple and a promise to marry. It is usually given by the man to the woman prior to the wedding.



The shape of the ring reveals its significance in our culture. This ring is actually an endless and perfect circle, and is perfectly attuned to symbolise love for the ages.

However, the tradition of the engagement ring is not as firmly rooted in all countries like it is in our own. In the West, it's commonplace to present the ring to loved ones. In some South American countries however, the ring is first worn on the right hand and then on the left hand during the wedding day.

Why would we give a ring to an engagement as a gift?

To answer this question, we need to open a brief historical parenthesis. It appears that the Romans practiced the custom of giving a future bride two rings - one gold and the other an iron one, to be worn at home so as to not to ruin the gold rings.

The ring was affixed to the left finger of the ring in the past, and we still do it, today, due to the vena Amoris (vein for love) was believed to run through this finger. It is directly connected to the center.

However, we have to wait until the Middle Ages to find traces of the first engagement ring, commissioned in 1477 by the Archduke of Austria Maximilian I for Mary of Burgundy.

In the 20th century, the tradition began to take hold, especially after the Second World War when the idea spread across the United States, that the engagement ring was a necessary gift for a wedding, especially when it is embellished with a diamond.

What is the best way to choose a wedding ring?

Now that we've got a better understanding about the engagement ring and what it means Let's take a look at some tips for choosing the right one.

First, there are no rules. Everyone can pick the ring that suits them depending on their personal tastes and preferences. However, it's true that there are some types of rings that are more popular than others. Most people choose:

Solitaire rings are rings that is made up of one stone, such as a diamond.

A riviere is also known as a veretta and has many stones in addition to it;

A half-faith or ring band, which as the term implies is a smaller band than the standard wedding ring.

A trilogy ring is another popular choice. It is a gold or a platinum jewel adorned with 3 precious stones. They are typically brilliants. Behind a trilogy there is also a romantic meaning as the three stones represent the present, future and past of the newly engaged couple.

There are a myriad of metals and materials that can be used to make rings. The most well-known are platinum, gold, and silver. Even with precious stones, there is no rule that is universally applicable; however, the most popular classic is definitely the diamond ring, and much more common are diamonds with brilliant cuts.

However, the use of other precious stones isn't unusual, nor is the addition of other stones to the diamond. In these instances, however, you need to be aware of the significance that they convey to them.

For instance, if you select an engagement ring that has an emerald, know that its meaning is multiple: this magnificent green stone is associated with harmony, elegance, optimism and peace When you gift it to your partner, it also becomes a symbol of the fidelity and devotion.

The meaning behind aquamarine is completely different. The meaning behind an engagement ring made of aquamarine is actually very important for a couple as it signifies happiness and solid love, and therefore, is a positive omen for their future life together.
