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!
