Archeological remains of ancient Egyptians were found to be wearing rings made from a single wire of either gold or silver around the ring finger of their left hand. It is believed that around 2,800 BCE, Egyptian men wore rings that symbolized wealth, and presenting a ring to a woman symbolized the sharing of wealth.
The custom of exchanging engagement rings and wedding bands is age old. It is observed in many traditions throughout the world. This tradition is rich in meaning. It represents the unending promise of love, trust and loyalty. Apart from the sentimental value attached to it, an engagement ring is the most precious and valuable piece of jewelry that every prospective bride cherishes all her life. So much so, that these rings and bands are considered beautiful heirlooms in many traditional families. Just like the wedding gowns, these are also passed on from one generation to another.
If your hands are wide and heavy, pick up a band that has round edges so that the pressure of it is not much on the flesh of the finger. If your fingers are slender, opt for a diagonal design of the band that will give the illusion of greater width.
Another type of gemstones, frequently used by the Native American tribes, is the dry creek turquoise. You can instantly identify the stone by its unique color which is nearly off-white; some have a tinge of light blue or green color in it. The gemstone is colorless as the mines where it is formed do not have metals near it. Other turquoises have some or the other metals like copper, iron or aluminum around them which gives them a definite color.
