With many cultures, the wedding ring is the final gift given from one spouse to the other. In almost every culture the wedding ring is preceded in the relationship by an engagement ring. In most Western Cultures, including Western Europe and the United States the husband and wife will engrave their names and the wedding date as a sign of their commitment to each other.
Wedding Ring - Differing Traditions Generally accepted as common knowledge, the wedding ring, in many places referred to as the wedding band, is a ring usually made of a precious material such as gold and silver. Depending on the culture's tradition and customs, it may be worn on the third finger, more commonly known as the ring finger, on either the left or right hand. The wedding ring symbolizes a commitment by one person to another. In most Anglo - Franco cultures, such as the United States, UK, and Western Europe, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand. While many Eastern European cultures such as Slovakia, Germany, Finland, Russia, and Poland, the wedding ring is worn on the right hand.
You might start there in your search for wedding rings. You will no doubt have your engagement ring with you, so use it while you’re shopping. You can try on wedding rings against your engagement ring to see the total beauty and at least narrow your options down.
It is also traditional to give someone a promise ring with small stones. Birthstones are very popular choices, but you can also leave this decision up to your imagination. Rubies can represent the red fire love that you feel towards your partner. Sapphires can symbolize that you always will be true blue towards your mate. Emeralds can correspond with how your special someone makes you feel rich and prosperous, despite the fact that you may not be rich by some people's standards. Giving promise rings to each other makes a bold statement to your friends and family letting them know that you are seriously in love. More importantly, it tells the recipient that you are dedicated to them and appreciate where you are in the relationship.
Palladium looks like platinum, feels like platinum, is part of the platinum family and is a great alternative to platinum when it comes to wedding rings. Like platinum, palladium can be fashioned into jewellery on its own or alloyed with other metals. Palladium is 30 times rarer than gold and doesn't need rhodium plating or bleaching to achieve its naturally coloured white finish.
