Christian wedding rings are worn on the left-hand ring finger [fourth finger]. The ring finger has Vena Amoris [Vein of Love] connected to the heart. Even most people are unaware of the history of wedding rings. About 4800 years ago, ancient Egyptians exchanged rings created with braided sledges, rushes and reeds.
The circle symbolise eternity with no beginning and end. The central hole is a gateway to all events. When a man gave a woman a ring, it meant giving her unending immortal love. These ancient rings were replaced with better materials like leather, bones and ivory. A more valuable ring carried more sentimental value – it declared his love for her.
Although the Romans adopted this tradition, they gave the women they possessed a ring. The ring did not symbolise love to the Roman men. They used iron rings called Annulus Pronubus and engraved names. Around 860 AD, Christians started using wedding rings with doves, lyres, or two linked hands. The Church disliked them, saying the rings were of heathen influence.
