The Meaning of the Rings

What does the wedding band symbolize? Women wait for the day where the man drops to one knee, opens a small velvet box and presents a stunning ring asking the words, “Will you marry me?” But what does it all mean? This is a little lesson on what the rings represent.

Traditionally, the engagement ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand, also known as the ring finger. Why this finger you should ask, because that specific finger contains the vena amors (vein of love). This vein is said to run from your finger to your heart. A ring is also circular in shape and a circle represents unity. The circle is never ending and when you get married that circle also represents the never ending relationship among two people.

So we know why the ring, but why a diamond ring? A diamond catches the light when worn. It stands for beauty as well as a sign that one is soon to be married. Because it catches the light, it draws attention to the womens hand so that others know the women is soon to be wed.
