5 Wedding Ring Traditions

May 14, 2015

5 Wedding Ring Traditions You Should Know About

Wedding rings have come a long way from their beginning stages as simple vines. With their growth in complexity and style came traditions and legends. Here are 5 wedding ring traditions that are still relevant today!

  1.)  Engagement rings are worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart. (Keeping the ring on this rarely used finger also protects the ring from wear and tear)

 

     2.)  Sapphire in a wedding ring symbolizes happiness

 

 

3.)  A pearl engagement ring is said to be bad luck because its shape mimics a tear

 

 

   4.)  Aquamarine in a wedding ring symbolizes marital harmony and is said to ensure a long, happy marriage

 

 5.) If a wedding is called off, the state you live in determines who gets the engagement ring!
