The symbolism of the diamond engagement ring dates back many centuries to Rome and represents the formal agreement to marry another and is normally worn on the left “ring” finger, the one closet to the heart. Engagement rings are primarily worn by women, however, in some cultures men can wear them as well.
A custom wedding set represents the ultimate expression of love and faith in your future with the rarest, most durable and most precious of all gems. The brilliance of a fine diamond ring is a beacon that announces your joy and commitment to one another and is a lasting reflection on you both. The engagement ring is “one half” of a set which represents marriage and a life long commitment of love, dedication and commitment, the wedding ring represents the other half.
The wedding band is worn first on the “ring” finger with the engagement ring placed next to it. During a wedding ceremony it is custom for the bride to walk down the aisle without her engagement ring on, or worn on the right hand, so that the wedding ring may be properly placed on her finger. After the ceremony the engagement ring is then placed back on the ring finger where the two individual rings become one.
There are many types of rings from simple solitaire diamond rings like a classic solitaire style engagement ring, to more elaborate styles such as three stone diamond rings known as trinity or triology rings, symbolizing “yesterday, today and tomorrow”.
There are also fancy intricate wedding band styles that incorporate small accent diamonds or gemstones and styles that accentuate the size and shape of the feature diamond such as the halo diamond ring. There are platinum rings, and rings made in yellow gold and white gold or even rose gold, as well as styles combining different precious metals. There is a diamond band for every taste and every budget.
Whether you prefer a Round Diamond, Radiant Cut Diamond, Princess Diamond, Marquise Diamond, Cushion Diamond, Heart Diamond, Asscher Cut Diamond, or Pear Shape Diamond, it will be the perfect symbol of your love.
