The giving and receiving of wedding rings is a physical representation of the wedding vows that a couple make to one another. The shape itself being representative of an everlasting promise of love and commitment - a circle with no beginning and no end, much as a marriage has no end.
The tradition of giving of wedding rings dates back as far as the Ancient Egyptians when couples exchanged rings braided from sedges, reeds and rushes with papyrus.
The custom of wearing a wedding ring on the ring finger of the left hand, also originated from Ancient Egypt as they believed that this finger enclosed a special vein that was connected directly to the heart, denominated in Latin the "Vena amoris" However, it was only in the early 20th century that the tradition of males wearing wedding rings began. During wartime soldiers would wear wedding rings as a memento to remember their loved ones by. It was only after the Korean War that male wedding bands took on the sentimental value that they have today.
Wedding rings of the past have also been made of leather, stone, aluminium, and metal. Today, wedding rings are almost always made of rose, yellow or white gold, palladium or platinum.
