History of wedding rings and how Lee Michaels will help you be a part of it
The act of looking to someones hand to see if they are married is common. The ritual of wearing a ring to signify your marriage is practiced across many different cultures all around the world. The very start of this was in Egypt, though Greece and Rome continued to raise the popularity of the practice. Ancient Egyptians chose the fourth finger, know almost exclusively known as the ring finger, because there was a vein that ran through it that went straight to the heart. The vein is called the “Vena amoris”, translated into the “vein of love”. This direct connection was and is a beautiful symbol of the connectedness of a relationship you are entering when you join hands in marriage. When Greece and Rome made it a custom practice, it quickly spread to being common throughout all of early Christendom. While the practices within wearing wedding bands varies greatly, them being forged of a precious metal is the most frequent consistent trait. Noble metals were chosen because they intended to represent how permanent marriage was. When the use of wedding bands made it over the sea to the United States, it was custom for only the wife to wear a band. Into the 20th century, husbands wore them more and more. Now, this is a very standard practice. You will see varied rings of both masculine and feminine styles in large numbers so you can find the perfect ring for you and your partner.
