Interesting Facts About Engagement Rings You Need to Know

Origin of Engagement Rings

Many historians and researchers believe that the origins of engagement rings came all the way from ancient Egypt, with this tradition then being adapted by the ancient Greeks. However the first reliably traceable history of engagement rings dates back to ancient Rome. A tradition from ancient Rome also led to the practice of wearing the engagement ring on the left ring finger. Although the engagement rings back then weren't elegant moissanite rings, the woman of ancient Rome still adorned beautiful gold engagement rings in public, and switched to an iron when completing house duties. Some believe that this engagement ring was part of the "bride price" which was necessary to pay to the bride's family to guarantee and secure the engagement. The infamous and luxurious diamond engagement ring was first documented during the Renaissance period where it was used to signify engagement. From that point on diamond engagement rings grew in popularity until the great depression where a drastic decrease in engagement rings was seen. Soon after World War 2 many companies began reinvesting and trying to popularize engagement rings once again leading to new and beautiful designs and discoveries such as lab-created diamond engagement rings, luxurious platinum engagement rings and the fiery moissanite engagement ring.

However there are some key times that could make your proposal sparkle almost as much as your ring! Holidays such as Christmas or New Years are often a quick and popular choice for many. With a beautiful background of glimmering lights and majestic fireworks, getting on your knee and pulling out your custom made moissanite or lab-created diamond engagement ring will only add to the magic of the moment. However for some this is an already stressful time and so adding engagement on top can be overwhelming. And that is completely understandable. Does your partner prefer pear cut or round moissanite? A beautiful rose gold custom piece or a stunning and elegant white gold classic? All important things to consider and for some, the holidays do not give ample time to take this thing into account.
