The tradition of giving an engagement ring is a precious symbol that can not mean anything other than trust, commitment and most importantly: Eternity.
Perhaps for this reason, asking for a wedding with a ring is a tradition that has been preserved to this day. It was the ancient Egyptians who began this, the circle was for them a perfect figure, without beginning or end symbolizing the love that never ends.
The Romans used rings as a seal, the husband gave it to his wife and with this delivery he ordered the custody of household items. In fact, it was them who gave name to the vein amoris or of love vein, according to their belief, there was a vein that communicated the ring finger with the heart. Through the engagement ring, love was bound and could not escape through the tips of the fingers. This is why, the engagement ring is placed on the ring finger.
The Christians had to wait until the thirteenth century for the engagement ring to be accepted by the Christian clergy, also acquiring a meaning of commitment and love.
Later on, and thanks to the slogan "A diamond is forever" the diamonds began to be part of the engagement rings.
It is said that the word diamond comes from the Greek "adamas" which means invincible.
Because true diamonds, like true love, are practically indestructible, durable, symbolize strength, power, and invincibility.
