Engagement ring meaning and the reason why it is given as a gift

We choose it, we purchase it, and we give it away as a gift. Are we sure that we understand its meaning? We'll tell you about its long-running history. Let's begin by saying that the purpose of the engagement ring is very simple, and deeply romantic. This type of ring represents the promise of marriage and love. It is typically given by a man to a woman prior to the wedding.

The shape of the ring itself is a reflection of the significance it has in our culture. This ring is a perfect circle that is endless and is a great symbol of love that never ends.

The tradition of the engagement ring isn't as common in other nations as it is here. Giving it to one's beloved is a common practice in the Western world. In a few South American countries, however this ring is positioned on the right hand instead of the left, and is then moved to the latter on the day of the wedding.

Why do we give engagement ring as gifts?

For an answer to this question, we will need to examine a short historical parenthesis. It seems that already in Roman times, there was the custom of giving the bride two rings, one gold and the other made of iron. The latter was to be used at home in order not to damage the gold one.

The ring was affixed to the left finger of the ring more and more in the past, and we still do it today, because the vena Amoris (vein for love) was believed to flow through this finger. It is directly connected to the central.

The first real engagement ring was ordered by Maximilian I, Archduke of Austria in 1477, for Mary of Burgundy.

Finally, in the twentieth century, the tradition gradually began to take root, especially after the Second World War, when it became popular in the United States that the engagement wedding ring was an essential present, particularly if it was adorned with diamonds.

What are the criteria to select the wedding ring?

Now that we have more information about the engagement ring and its meaning Let's take a look at some tips on how to choose it.

The first rule is that there are no rules: everyone is free to pick the ring that they prefer according to their individual tastes and, most importantly, the preferences of their spouse. However, it's true that there are types of rings that are more popular than others. People usually choose:

a solitaire, that is an ring on which a single stone is set, like a diamond

A riviere, also known as veretta, that is a riviere that has multiple stones set;

A half-faith, or ring band that, as the name suggests is a thinner ring than the classic wedding ring.

A trilogy ring is another popular choice. It is a gold or platinum ring that is decorated with three precious stones. They are typically brilliants. A trilogie ring has an romantic meaning, since the three stones represent the past, the present and the future of the couple.

As for materials, the most popular are platinum and gold, but you can also get rings in titanium, silver and other metals. Even when it comes to precious stones, there is no rule that applies to everyone. despite this, the best classic is undoubtedly the diamond ring. the most popular are diamonds with brilliant cuts.

However, the use of other precious stones is not uncommon, as is the addition of additional stones to the diamond. In these instances, however, you need to pay attention to the significance they bring to them.

For instance, if you choose to get an engagement ring that has an emerald ring, remember that its meaning is varied: this magnificent green stone is synonymous with beauty, harmony serenity and hope, but when you give it to your girlfriend it also can be a symbol of love, loyalty and fidelity.

Aquamarine is a totally different symbolism. The meaning behind an engagement ring made of aquamarine can be extremely important for couples because it symbolizes a happy and stable love, and is therefore a good symbol for their future together.
