Wedding rings

Wedding rings are a symbol of marriage vows, a symbol of the eternal connection of two souls, two bodies. It is a time in your life when you are ready for the next big step in your relationship and truly express your lifelong commitment to each other. Wedding rings are the most visible sign of love and that is why they must be especially beautiful.

Wedding rings are considered to be the oldest feature of marriage, which dates back to ancient Egypt, according to some sources, from the 9th century BC. n. e. For the ancient Egyptians, the circle was a symbol of eternity, a pledge of lasting love and life together. So they shaped it into a ring and wore it on the little finger of his left hand. The reason for that was that they believed that the vein from that place leads straight to the heart.

Since the 13th century, the wedding ring has become a part of Christian weddings and it has become a custom to wear it on the little finger. Namely, while the priest was saying the words "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit", he would touch one finger at a time, starting with the thumb. At the spoken word "amen", he would put the ring on his little finger. Also, the custom of wearing it by both sexes was established at that time, because until then it was worn only by women.
