Origin of the Ring
Have you ever wondered why so much thought and stress accompanies choosing that round rock on a wedding finger? Wedding rings date back to 6,000 years ago to Ancient Egypt. Originally made out of sedges, rushes and reeds, they were twisted and braided into rings for Egyptian women. To give a woman a ring signified the never-ending and immortal love between the couple as the circle was thought to be a the symbol of eternity. ¬†In fact, the value of the ring demonstrated the wealth of the giver as well as the perceived value of the woman.
The Egyptians believed that the ring finger of the left hand housed a special vein that was connected directly to the heart otherwise known as the Vena amoris. So no wonder choosing the ring can sometimes be the most stressful part of the wedding!
