On which finger is the engagement rings put

This time we bring you a very romantic theme such as a proposal for a hand. A day of many nerves and especially for the groom, since the bride is usually caught by surprise. Once that day has arrived, the same question always arises, on which finger to put the engagement ring and what are the reasons .

Why is a ring given as a gift?

This tradition comes from the time of the Egyptian empires. They say that, at the time of marrying a woman, the one who would be her husband, gave her a gold ring. However, this tradition took on more importance in ancient Roman times. And it is the Christians who gave more importance to this gesture.

It is also said that the engagement rings had a rounded shape symbolizing the circle, since this represents the cycle of life. Today there are many shapes and styles and this tradition is not followed to the letter. In addition, over time white gold began to predominate, giving the ring a more youthful appearance and elegance. You can take a look at some of the examples of engagement rings.

By the 15th century, Archduke Maximilian gave a diamond ring to Mary of Burgundy for her engagement . Since then, the diamond has become an indispensable stone in almost all engagement ring designs If you are thinking of buying your engagement rings , you can take a look at our large selection.



But…. Where is the engagement rings put?

The engagement ring is placed on the ring finger of the left hand. It is placed on the left hand because it is the one closest to the heart and on the ring hand, since the “vena amoris” or “vein of love” passes through that finger Being the Romans who began to place the ring on this finger.


What to do with the engagement rings at the wedding?

At the wedding, no ring is usually worn so that the wedding band takes more importance. But there are times when the bride wants to wear an alliance by tradition or simply because she does not want to part with her engagement ring . In any case, in Spain it is a tradition, in much of the territory, for the wedding ring to be worn on the ring finger of the right hand, so the engagement ring can be worn on the left hand.
