The Wedding Bands is a timeless emblem of love and commitment. Rings have symbolized many things throughout history, carrying personal and spiritual meanings. Perhaps their most important meanings are known only to those who wear them.
Today's bride and groom have more wedding ring options than ever before. You can choose among countless wedding ring styles and materials to tell your story and express your love. Still, the symbolism of a wedding ring remains much the same as it has for countless generations. In many ways, the love we experience today is no different from that of our ancient ancestors.
Choosing the Wedding Band, which is the centrepiece of the ceremony, takes months of careful consideration. Any ring you choose to represent your union with your beloved may be personalised to reflect your own style and taste. When selecting wedding rings, it is important to keep in mind your budget; the price of your jewellery will vary based on the gold weight, as well as the carat weight of your wedding band. Determine your budget before making a decision on a certain model.
What Does a Wedding Ring Symbolize?
The symbolism of a Wedding Bands is closely tied in with the symbolism of its shape—a circle. Throughout history, circles have been used as a metaphor for concepts of totality, wholeness, perfection, the self, infinity, eternity, and timelessness.
Circles have also been seen as symbols for God, both in Christian faiths and many other religions. Circles have no beginning and no end, and their symmetry has made them symbols for heaven and God's perfection.
The eternal nature of a circle has also made rings—especially wedding rings—symbols not only of love, but eternal love. By giving an engagement ring or exchanging wedding bands, you promise that you will love and remain devoted to one another throughout all of your time.
Wedding Rings throughout History
Wedding Rings have a long and complicated history stretching back thousands of years. Though giving a ring as a sign of love and fidelity is an ancient tradition, it has changed and been reshaped many times over the centuries. Ancient Egyptians were among the first to give wedding rings, around 6,000 years ago. The tradition was picked up by ancient Greek and Roman cultures, and has waxed and waned in European countries ever since.
Ring styles and materials have changed a lot too. In ancient Rome, wedding rings were often made of leather, ivory or bone. Even as metal rings became more popular, they were typically made of inexpensive metals like iron. Silver and gold rings would be worn only by the very wealthy.
Elsewhere in Europe, wedding ring styles went through a variety of trends. It's interesting to take a long view of history and see emerging fads that would come and go, just like today. Some old-fashioned types of wedding rings exist now only in museums, while others have left a more lasting influence:
Husbands commonly gave Gimmel rings to wives during the 16th and 17th centuries. Designed with two interlocking bands that could be separated and then put together like puzzle pieces, gimmel rings would sometimes be separated during the engagement. The man and woman would each wear half of the ring and then reunite the two pieces at the wedding, to be worn by the wife after that.
Importance of Wedding Bands
Wedding vows at a church or town hall are sometimes accompanied by the presentation of an engagement ring, which functions as a marriage proposal. As contrast to engagement rings, Wedding Bands have diamonds adorning the whole band, unlike engagement rings, which have a larger diamond in the centre. It is possible to have your diamond wedding band adjusted, but there are certain cases in which we cannot, such as when the wedding ring is too thin. A single number change in your finger size may be possible in most circumstances, but if you want to raise or reduce your alliance by more than one number, you must submit the alliance to us so that we may look at all of the possible sizes.
We provide a wide variety of gold and Diamond Wedding Bands in a variety of sizes and forms to suit every taste and budget. In the rail-set or claw-set wedding band, for example, the gold ring is simply surrounded by many diamonds that are positioned close to each other. It's more current and fashionable than ever to have a diamond pave on the white gold ring of the three-gold diamond wedding band, which consists of three rings in white gold, yellow gold, and pink gold that intertwine. If you like, you can also use our online design studio to create a custom gold diamond wedding ring. This is an option if you want something more trendy. The alliance's size, gold colour, and position are all customizable options.
