Choosing Your Wedding Bands

Choosing Your Wedding Bands

The tradition of the wedding band dates back over 6,000 years ago to Ancient Egypt.  The circle symbolized eternity to signify the perpetual love of the spouses.  The Egyptians believed that the ring finger on the left hand had a special vein called the “Vena amoris” which is connected directly to the heart. Today, most married couples across the world wear wedding rings to signify their marital status.

Today, most wedding bands are constructed of a precious metal sometimes with embellishments with precious stones such as diamonds.  Although many couples select bands that match or compliment each other, there is no requirement on what denotes a wedding band.  Many couples are going custom today to express their personality.  Have fun, hopefully you will wear this band the rest of your life!  Here are some wedding band ideas that we love!
