The history of wedding rings
Wedding rings are arguably the most widely recognizable symbol of love in the world.
Archeological evidence suggests that it was the Egyptians who first started wearing braided rings made from reeds and hemp from as far back as 4000BC. These rings were worn on the fourth finger of the left hand as the ancient Egyptians believed that 'a vein of love' ran from this finger directly to the heart.
This practice of giving a ring to a lover as a symbol of devotion was later adopted by the Greeks after Alexander the great conquered the Egyptians. The Romans then adopted the practice of wearing a ring on the fourth finger of the left hand as a symbol of of devotion and love after they conquered Greece.
To this day the tradition still holds true for most cultures of wearing the wedding ring on the left hand "ring finger" as it is now known.
The Egyptian Pharaohs were the first to use rings as symbols of eternity as well, because the circle has no beginning or end. It also represented the shape of the sun and the moon which held great significance in the beliefs of the ancient Egyptians.
They also believed that the open space in the ring represented a gateway to other unknown worlds.
It was the Romans who first began wearing iron and copper rings and only the wealthy could afford to wear gold and silver rings. However by the 2nd century most rings were made from gold.
Rings became more ornate as time went by and by the 3rd and 4th centuries gemstones such as amethyst, garnet and carnelian were often set in the rings as well and represented the wealth of the giver of the ring.
During the 15th century 'posie rings' came into being. Posie rings had an short verse inscribed on the ring. As as time went by these verses became more personal in nature. The verses were sometimes engraved on the inside of the ring to keep the messages private and closer to the wearer.
The practice of having a verse or message engraved in the inside of rings is still popular today and is likely to remain a popular practice.
The term "wedding ring" only came into being in medieval England where it was common practice for couples who wished to get married to offer each other a gift of consent called a 'wed'. This 'wed' gift was often a ring and so the term 'wed ring' or wedding ring came into being.
