Wedding rings are given as an expression of commitment. Now centuries old, this tradition of exchanging rings has become customary for nearly every married couple. Even dating back to Egyptian times, bands of papyrus where used in ceremonies for marriage. This custom of exchanging rings evolved from paper to gold wedding rings worn primarily by women. Still, over the past century and a half this tradition has broadened to include the groom as well. Ever since, these men’s wedding rings have become an item of day to day wear for most gentlemen.
During the Victorian, Edwardian, and Art Deco periods women’s bands transformed into more ornate designs, many of which included diamonds and detailed filigree patterns. The designs of these time periods are still sought after in a style known as vintage wedding rings, and this has become a popular look with today’s modern bride.
Today we can see bridal rings ranging from simple diamond wedding rings, to full eternity wedding rings encompassing the entire finger. It seems that there are endless possibilities for any diamond style or ornamental design.
