Beautiful gemstones or diamonds
An engagement ring is arguably the most important thing you will purchase for someone in your lifetime. The proposal is a moment in time you and your loved one will revisit in reminiscence. This makes the ring is just as memorable as popping the question. An engagement ring traditionally features beautiful gemstones or diamonds which makes it one of the most luxurious and romantic gestures one could ever bestow upon another.
History of Engagement Rings
The tradition of giving an engagement ring to another person dates back to Roman times. Amongst their pioneering work that influenced an entire globe, they’re credited with creating the engagement ring. Going all the way back to 1st century AD, a betrothal ceremony would take place where a groom would present his bride-to-be with a ring.
A Traditional Gift of Engagement Rings
As the giving of engagement rings became a mainstay of life, so did some of its traditions. An engagement ring is typically worn on the fourth finger of the left hand where it will sit forever. The diamond is a natural substance that is also the toughest on Earth. This solidity has become synonymous with engagements as this is a love that will never end. Over the years as technology has advanced, diamond engagement ring styles have evolved, leading to a myriad of styles and shapes to choose from.
