Engagement rings: 6 things you need to be aware of

The engagement ring is a piece of jewelry with a lot of significance. It is a symbol of love and commitment.

This is part of French culture and tradition that makes this moment memorable.



Although the engagement ring is an emblematic ring however, its meaning and the customs remain a mystery.

Learn about the significance and story behind the engagement ring, along with the different aspects you should consider when choosing the ring.

History

The custom of giving an engagement ring as a sign of engagement is not new.

The practice originates from Roman Antiquity, and itself stems from an Egyptian custom that said a vein connected the heart directly to the left finger of the ring. This belief was later picked up by the Romans and is evident in the Latin name "vena amoris" (vein of love).

The Roman custom was that the man would give his bride rings at the time of their wedding. The ring, in an ideal circle, represented forever love. This lovely tradition has been cultivated through the ages, and is still in use today.

From the Renaissance onwards, rings set with precious stones gave them their appearance. Today, they are a royal choice for a wedding ring.

Meaning

The engagement ring symbolizes commitment and the desire to be married and share your loved one's life. The circular shape of the ring that is without beginning and without ending it evokes endless, eternal and unfailing love.

Although engagements are less common nowadays than in the past, they still have a strong symbolic meaning. Many couples also opt to keep the tradition.

Although it is feasible to plan an event on anniversary of the engagement but the ring will be given out during a private and restricted moment. In addition, engagements aren't always religious. The ring is therefore displayed as a symbol of love.

The material of the engagement ring

The engagement ring is usually be made out of gold. It can be an engagement ring:

White gold - A blend of pure gold, nickel-zinc and palladium

In yellow gold - Mixture of pure silver, gold and copper

In rose gold – Mixture of pure copper, gold, and various metals

Yellow gold engagement rings are the most popular for decades. However, white gold designs are particularly popular. Elegant and modern, white gold engagement rings harmonize perfectly with diamonds and other precious stones.

Style & design

Classic diamond solitaire, double ring, or vintage jewelry: there are numerous types of engagement rings. The selection of engagement rings will be based on the preferences and tastes of the couple.

Take inspiration from the jewellery that a person typically wears.

A diamond engagement ring however, is a great bet.

Diamonds and precious stones

The diamond represents eternal love and commitment.

Given its beauty and value the engagement ring with one or more diamonds also attests to the authenticity of the proposal. The diamond solitaire is among the most popular designs when it comes to choosing an engagement ring.

All precious stones including diamonds, can be used to create rings and ornaments. Sapphire and emerald based on the person's tastes are fantastic choices.

Maison Arthus Bertrand has several models of white-gold engagement ring that feature a gemstone, like diamonds or any of the gems listed above.

Wear an engagement ring

The engagement ring is typically placed on the ring-finger of the left hand. This tradition dates back to Antiquity and is a reference to the "vein of love".

Because of this the ring finger has always been intended for wearing rings (signet ring, wedding ring and engagement ring). In addition, the word annular is etymologically used to refer to the ring.

It is therefore customary to wear the engagement ring on the same finger as the wedding ring. The wedding ring is positioned first, and the engagement ring on top. The wedding ring will then be set closer to the heart.
