Loops of love
The luxury of the wedding ring can be clearly defined in on single sentence `ageless`
That loop around the finger makes a lot of difference. Every girl dreams about that one ring that would adorn her finger on the most important day of her life. Would it be gold or silver? Would there be engravings? What stone would it bear? A diamond, ruby or a sapphire? There`s a myriad of questions spinning in her head.
Wedding rings however have evolved over the years. From wedding and betrothal rings to the pledges of love rings; they have always appealed to our imaginations, emotions and yearnings. Long ago, our ancestors accepted the ring as an emblem of eternity and a symbol indicative of steadfast devotion - an interpretation quite contrary to Samuel Johnson`s brusque definition of `a circular instrument placed upon the noses of hogs and the fingers of women to restrain them and bring them into subjection.
We cannot be sure exactly how the custom of placing the marriage or betrothal ring on the third finger of the left hand arose. It may be ascribed to the belief of the ancients\' that a special vein or nerve ran directly from this finger to the heart. However this practice has come to stay.
The fact however remains that the ring is also an accessory, a thing of beauty, a symbol of pride amongst women and as such brides and grooms go the extra mile to make it beautiful and extra special. A ring has transcended from just a symbol of love and commitment to a fashion item.
