Weddings Bands have a long history that dates to over 4800 years ago and they are still very relevant today with over a billion dollars being spent on them every year.
The wedding band, a circle, with no beginning or end is the symbol of eternity.
Wedding bands were not always made of precious metals, the Egyptians were known to use just reeds from the river banks twined into a circle and put on the finger as a ring. As these did not last the material moved to leather or bone, the more expensive materials were always only for those that could afford.
Wedding bands were seen then, as they are now, the more expensive the wedding band the wealthier the giver and the more love was being shown.
While a simple round circle, the symbolism and traditions of the wedding band has developed over the 1000’s of years with each country, religion and the subcultures within each.
