The engagement ring as a symbol of love

 

There´s no better feeling in the world than to know one found the perfect partner!

And the best way to show togetherness, to celebrate love with a wonderful ritual, to seal each others feelings is an engagement ring. With a tender ring on your left ring finger you let the world know that you are seeing someone and planning your wedding. More and more young couples find their way back to this wonderful tradition and choose to get engaged to run through a kind of marriage-test run.

The history of engagement rings starts back in the ancient world. First evidence of exchanged engagement rings were found in antique Greek and Rome, where the cornerstone for the high symbol-percentage of the rings was set.

In the 15th and 16th century the upper nobility started to wear and exchange rings. Engagement rings were beset with one diamond or more and were very valuable. A diamond symbolized harmony after the wedding and throughout the marriage. Because of the fact that they were so precious and valuable it took several centuries more until engagement rings like that became common among other social stratums. Even nowadays a clearly white diamond-solitaire-ring is the most popular engagement ring and is counted among the most important pieces of jewelry in a womans’ life.

Because of their round form rings became the “jewelry of the loving ones”. They stand for eternity and never endling love, are a symbol of constant togetherness, everlasting commitment, dedication and loyalty between two people. A ring is shaped like the full moon and the sun and was also a symbol of perfection, unity and infinity for past cultures.

Originally people thought that the left ring fingers vein leads directly into the heart and strengthens love by wearing the ring on this finger.

An engagement ring is supposed to be something very special, no matter if one chooses a classy ring with a brilliant cut diamond or an exceptional designer single piece.

Here we show you a little selection of beautiful rings, turned into a magical world of pictures by Pia Clodi from peaches & mint.

And we say thanks a lot to all jewelers and jewelry-designers for providing these amazing pieces.
