Have you ever looked at an engagement ring and thought about its history? Most people take it for granted that people buy an engagement ring when they commit to marriage. However, this practice is not specified in the bible or even in older documents that give detailed accounts of pre-marital practices.
The popularity of the engagement ring began in the 19th century. However, the engagement ring was not always a symbol of a person’s undying affection. In the past, the engagement ring was an instalment which was to be paid to the bride’s family for when it is finally handed over to be worn by the bride.
It was a kind of insurance for the bride-to-be, against the possibility of the prospective partner disbanding the marriage. Ending a marriage or engagement might compromise the woman’s virtue, which would make her unappealing to other men.
The modern meaning of the engagement ring started in the 20th century. Men would give their fiancées a band symbolising their love and an intention to marry. An engagement ring signifies that a woman is taken and vouched for. Wearing an engagement ring means a woman is ready to marry her man.
The ring is placed on the woman’s “heart finger” which is the fourth finger on the left hand. The finger is believed to have a vein running through it that runs directly to the heart. Early engagement rings were iron bands or a piece of silver without adornment. This practice was in place for a short period of time until the media and commercial rings took over and set the standard for engagement rings.
Adverts shown in the middle of the 19th century suggests that men spend at least 2 months of their monthly income on an engagement ring. This would allow him to purchase the perfect ring for his bride-to-be. These adverts defined the style and symbolism of the engagement ring, which was a new direction when compared to the engagement rings of the past.
