About Engagement Rings
Getting an engagement ring is a turning point for any woman, marking the beginning of a new life and the start of an important commitment to a loved one. These rings act as symbolic devices, but are also potential heirlooms that a bride can pass down through her family for generations. Men and women began using engagement rings as a symbol of commitment as early as Ancient Egyptian times, when the circle of a band was thought to represent the never-ending cycle of a bond between two people. Ancient Romans even used rings to represent a betrothal that features a small key, representing the unlocking of wealth that would come with a marriage. The traditional approach to engagement rings today involves a diamond solitaire in a plain band setting or gold engagement rings, but many brides and grooms have been deciding on much more dynamic choices of late. Engagement rings today can feature platinum, stones other than diamonds, and unique designs that really sidestep the classic solitaire. The central diamond or other stone in one of these rings can feature a range of cuts, including Oval, Princess, Radiant, and Marquis to name a few. Bands can also be plain, beveled, or even set with pave diamonds. Many people prefer to purchase their rings in an engagement ring set, matching the wedding bands to the engagement rings and sometimes the groom's band, as well. Commemorating this important event in life is an exciting time; the fact that choosing a ring is such a diverse and exciting experience can make it feel even more special.
