Engagement rings

13 July 2015 / Blog

Have you ever wondered where engagement rings come from? It turns out that the idea is nearly as old as civilization itself the ancient Egyptians are often credited with beginning the tradition (though others believe it was actually begun in ancient Greece or ancient Rome.) What we do know for sure is that the tradition has been popular ever since. These rings were ideally made of gold, however many girls received iron rings instead of or in addition to their gold ring, for iron was better suited to housework. In 1477 an Austrian Archduke named Maximilian gave a diamond ring to his fiance Mary of Burgundy, thus beginning the diamond’s association with engagement and eternal love.
