Promise Rings For Couples - THE ORIGINS of an enduring symbol

SYMBOLISM FOR THE LONGEST LOVE Ritual in the world From the first look to the exchange of WEDDING rings. What does this precious ring REPRESENT?

One of the most powerful emotions of the wedding day is certainly that moment when the first glance is exchanged, as the bride walks down the aisle in a white gown, to reach the future husband.



The exchange of rings is a moment of great emotion that makes the marriage official between the spouses. The exchange of wedding rings is a solemn act that brings emotions to the spouses as well as the guests. This is the moment when a pact is made of love for eternity.

The ring comes from Latin anulus, which translates to circle, is simple, with a circular shape that has no beginning or ending, represents the circle of life and the eternal.

It is not a coincidence that the symbol symbolizes the unbreakable love that binds two people.

From the Latin fides comes the term "faith" which refers to loyalty. Fides was the name of a Roman goddess who symbolized loyalty. In the beginning, its initial and old meaning was connected to the loyalty of the Roman citizen to his home country.

The history of wedding rings as a symbol is akin to the more general notion of using rings as a symbol for something important.

The ancient Egyptians included, for instance, soldered seals with hieroglyphics and scarabs to rings, whereas the Greeks carried gold rings with engravings or cameos. For the early Romans the use of these jewels was restricted by law: the rings of free citizens were made of gold, the ones of freed slaves of silver and those of slaves of iron. Christians soon adopted the habit of wearing jewels and in the Middle Ages, the custom of giving rings to kings or bishops during their consecration and coronation was introduced.

Tradition states that pontiffs receive the "piscatory" ring that depicts the boat of St. Peter with the name of Pope around it.

The acclaim for this kind of jewelry reached its height in the 16th century, a time during which people would wear a ring or two on each finger, with a seal or more often embellished with stones.

However, the use of rings during wedding ceremonies and engagement vows also has a long history. In the time of the barbarians couples exchanged rings to signify their commitment to signify their vow of love. In the Middle Ages women would braid hairs from their head and that of their future husband around the ring and keep it for nine days at the chest level before exchanging it to show love and loyalty. The wedding ring has the design and meaning we associate with it today since the 16th century. In actual fact it was at this period that both women and men started wearing the wedding ring following the ceremony. Wedding rings were made out of gold, a symbol of eternal life for those of the Catholic faith, and included engravings with the names of the couples.

The gold ring is a symbol of a perfect, lasting union.

In order to be able to understand why the ring is the ideal finger to wear, we need to go back to ancient Egyptian beliefs. According to these beliefs, a small artery runs from the ring towards the heart. In Christian practice, however it was the left ring-finger that the priest tapped after touching the other three fingers to invoke the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In reality the wedding ring is worn on the left ring finger due to practical reasons: because it is the weakest finger in the hand and thus the least used.

There is a neo-traditional Chinese belief that each finger on your hand is a symbol of the person you love dearly. The little finger represents our children, the middle finger represents us The thumb represents our parents The index finger represents our brothers and sisters, and the ring represents the person who is our partner.

In the same way that their origins differ, so are the ways in which they are made: from the classic to the more expansive Mantua band, to the thinner French and the flat Sardinian, more or less decorated, there are many kinds of wedding rings couples can choose to wear on their big day.
