Wedding Traditions: The Rings

Wedding rings are an outward symbol of your love and commitment to your spouse. The ring is an eternal circle with no beginning and no end.

Origins

We can trace the origins of wedding rings back 3,000 years to ancient Egypt. The first ones were made from papyrus until the tradition spread from Egypt to Greece and Rome when the people started making rings from iron and then gold.

Egyptians used the fourth finger of the left hand, our ring finger. Annularus vein (or the vein of love) that runs to the heart.
