Wedding Bands and Eternity Rings
Celebrating lifelong lasting commitment with a lifelong lasting ring
A symbol of eternal love, the wedding ring is a very old tradition. The wedding ring is an emblem of love through time and representation of a lifelong agreement between two parties to love and cherish one another. Wedding rings are circular in shape, it has no beginning and no end this makes it a symbol of infinity. It is endless, eternal; just the way love should be.
For many the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. Tradition is believed to have derived from the Romans. The wedding ring is worn on the left hand ring finger because it is believed there is a vein in the finger, referred to as the ‘Vena Amoris’ or the ‘Vein of Love’ which leads directly to the wearer’s heart.
Also known as an infinity ring, an eternity ring is usually compromised with a row of gemstones representing continuous love, given to your partner at a significant event during like relationship (the birth of a child or an important anniversary date). The style of the eternity has many forms but all carry the same sentiment. The most common form of the eternity ring is a row of diamonds set continuously around the finger. There are many ways in which these gemstones can be set in an eternity ring, all dictated by preference and of course the lifestyle of the wearer.
As the name suggests, promise rings signify that a promise is being made but the meaning of a promise ring differs from couple to couple. Promise rings are widely used as a symbol of commitment. Many couples use the ring as a way to signify a future engagement, others simply wear the ring as a means of reflecting devotion to one another. Many couples also do not want to brand their love in which they feel is an outdated language.
