Evolution of the Wedding Ring

The evolution of the ‘traditional’ wedding ring. From rings of hemp and bamboo, to rings on the toe and bangles of iron and copper. This all depends on where you live. In most western marriage ceremonies, a wedding ring is made from a precious metal such as gold or platinum and may feature precious gem stones. But that doesn’t have to be the case.

In some regions of India, the ‘wedding ring’ is actually a toe ring that a woman wears during the ceremony. In France, a common practice is to exchange a wedding band that features three interwoven rings. The three rings stand for ‘faith’, ‘hope’ and ‘love’. In Turkey, the wedding band is a puzzling issue (literally). The bands are composed of interlocking metal bands that have to be arranged in a certain order to form a single ring.

It was the Romans that introduced the idea of making a wedding ring from a metal, namely brass or copper. The act of giving and accepting the ring was also considered legally binding, tying the woman as the property of the man. Feminism wasn’t a strong movement apparently in Roman times!
