Don’t miss out on these wedding ring traditions!

Sometimes, we follow traditions without even knowing exactly where they originated – and wedding traditions make no exception from this rule. For example, do you know what are some of the most beautiful symbols behind the wedding rings? We have gathered some of the most interesting facts, so make sure to read on if you want to find out more about this.


  • The idea of wearing a wedding ring seems to have originated in the Ancient Egypt. The ring, an unbreakable circle, stood for the never-ending love and commitment the husband and wife bear to each other. Wearing a wedding ring did not become very popular until Roman times though – and ever since then it has caught on to most of the Western civilizations.
  • Furthermore, the idea of wearing a diamond ring is very frequently associated with the strength of this gem (which symbolizes the strength of the love between the husband and wife as well). The tradition of the diamond engagement ring started in the second half of the 15th century in Austria and it is still followed today as well.
  • Last, but not least, the idea of wearing matching wedding rings is quite new for the American soil. Although this tradition was introduced by the Greek Orthodox Church in the 14th century, it wasn’t until the Second World War that Americans started to wear wedding bands (especially since war split them apart from their loved ones and the rings acted as a “promise”  and as a solace as well).
