The ring has been included in wedding ceremonies since the 12th century. King Edward VI decreed the third finger of the left hand be designated as the ‘official’ ring finger and in 1549, the book of Common Prayer sealed the deal with the designation of the left hand as the marriage hand.
Traditionally, a wedding ring is a never-ending circle thought to symbolise ever-lasting love, wholeness and perfection. Its endlessness is the perfect symbol of oneness and unity. A ring is also the symbol of the sun, earth and the universe and represents holiness, perfection and peace.
To any couple getting married, their rings will probably be the most significant pieces of jewellery they will ever buy, as they represent the sealing of the marriage, and are a symbol of lifelong commitment.
Great care and consideration should be taken when choosing your wedding ring. And, as this will be worn everyday, it’s important to pick one which complements your lifestyle and fashion choice.
