"I would like to have engraved inside every wedding band: be kind to one another."    Randolph Ray


Almost all brides wear a wedding ring. In early days, they had two purposes. Then, brides were bought by their husbands and the ring was accepted as partial payment, which symbolized a grooms honourable intentions. It wasnt until medieval Italy when rings started to include diamonds. A diamonds hardness was considered symbolic of enduring love.

The ring also symbolizes the circle of life. Traditionally the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This custom came from the Egyptians who believed that the left hand was connected directly to the heart. Although, the ring finger does not have a vein to the heart, the tradition is still carried on today.

At present, rings in yellow gold are still the most popular. However, platinum has made a comeback, as well as two-tone yellow, and white gold in 14 and 18 k. Coloured stones are also appealing and whether your ring is thick or thin, wide or narrow, the choice is entirely yours.

For comfort and safekeeping, make certain you get the correct fit. Day in, day out, year after year, no other piece of apparel can compete with the hours that you will wear your wedding ring.
