Audra Odom. Ring. September 17th , 2017.
The Wedding Ring - Customs and Traditions: Undoubtedly, everyone at least one time has walked by a jewelry store's front window and paused to look at the beautiful arrangements of wedding ring styles on display. For many single people, just glancing at such a wedding ring display may make you dream of the day you will marry.
Palladium was discovered by William Hyde Wollaston in 1803 and has been used as a precious metal in jewellery since 1939. As recently as 2001, palladium was more expensive than platinum and rarely used in jewellery due to the issue of casting - the technology to efficiently cast palladium as jewellery did not exist then. Palladium is extremely difficult to cast well because it is a veritable oxygen sponge when molten; it therefore requires a very controlled melting environment. However, the casting problem has been solved and its use in jewellery has increased because of a large increase in the price of platinum and a drop in the price of palladium.
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.
Tradition and Culture: It has been debated by many scholars when the practice of using rings as symbols of weddings started. The fact remains that almost every country and culture in the planet right now would require rings to bind the couple together. The ceremony may vary because of tradition, religion, or culture; but the presence of wedding rings is guaranteed.
The price of the ring is only part of what you need to look at. The real price tag is the value. She does not need to know exactly what you spent, but the value is going to be on the appraisal so she will know that. There is nothing wrong with getting a $3,000 ring for $1,000. That is called smart shopping.
