Your wedding rings are a sign of everlasting love and commitment, and the quality of those rings should match that sentiment.

Wedding rings have been exchanged very much as a symbol of the lasting bond of marriage for many centuries. The circle of a ring represents undying love and the continually renewed vows of the married couple.

Wedding rings today are a physical sentiment of love, but no one can really say for sure when this age old tradition actually started.

Circles have long been archetypes for not only timelessness, but also wholeness and homecoming. The circle also speaks to the constant round of the heavens, as well as the eternal return of the seasons, marked by cyclical ritual and celebration.

In addition, the circle in rock art, sacred stone arrays, and astrology represents both the Sun and the Moon, themselves astrological and alchemical symbols for the masculine and feminine aspects of the cosmos.

This correspondence with the Sun and Moon is emphasised by the frequent practice of choosing gold for one betrothed and silver for the other, as gold and silver are the metals long associated with the Sun and Moon respectively.

Gold is the most popular wedding ring and engagement ring metal.

Gold wedding bands did not become widely available until after the mid-1800s U.S. gold rush.

In ancient Persia, gold wedding rings were a symbol of fidelity.

Wedding Traditions

  • In the past, wedding gowns were not always white. Many years ago, blue was a symbol of ‘purity’. Many cultures have never recognised white as a wedding dress color. In Asian cultures, red is often worn. In Norway, brides used to wear green. And in Iceland, black was the color of choice by brides. The Icelanders took the “’till death do you part” thing pretty seriously.
  • Iron was used to make rings in ancient Rome as far back as 200 B.C. The iron rings symbolised strength. Although many brides also thought it symbolised ‘cheapness’ by the groom.
  • The first use of a diamond ‘engagement ring’ was in 1477 and was given to Mary of Burgundy by Archduke Maximilian of Hamburg. 
  • Tradition has it that wearing pearls on your wedding day is bad luck because they represent tears. But interestingly, the amount of tears a groom sheds is directly proportional to the cost of the bride’s diamond jewellery. Lesson to be learned?…stick with diamonds. If mama ain’t happy, ‘everybody’ will be crying!
  • Tossing the bouquet is said to bring the newlyweds luck and protection. Let’s face it, holding onto a bunch of bug-infested weeds is bad luck for anyone. Might as well pawn it off on someone else.
  • The word ‘bride’ is derived from the Celtic word ‘Brigid’, which was a goddess in Celtic legend and lore. The goddess then became St. Brigid of Ireland, who bestowed blessings on the brides. The word ‘groom’ comes from the Piglatin word ‘Oom-gray’, of St. Oomgray, who was the patron Saint of Flatulence.
  • Actual aisle runners were first used when roads and pathways were unpaved and muddy. The runner kept the bottom of the bride’s gown from getting dirty. It was then re-used to wrap sides of beef at the local ‘Thine Buttcher Shoppe’ and to cover the examination table at ‘Thou Medeval Docktor Office’…a tradition that carries on to this day.
