What is a diamond engagement ring?
A wedding is one of the most important days, one of the most memorable and meaningful events in every person's life.
In ancient times, the ring was a symbol of a relationship. For example, in ancient Rome a young man gave a ring to his bride-to-be's parents, trying to show that he had enough financial means to take care of the future family.
According to legend, the first engagement ring was given to his bride by Duke Maximilian of Austria, who lived in the 15th century. He was promised to marry the first beauty of Europe, Mary of Burgundy. At that time, marriages between nobles were often contracted for political or financial gain. But Maximilian was truly in love with Mary and feared rejection. When the marriage had already been arranged and the ceremony was still months away, the Duke presented his beloved with a ring. The ring was encrusted with a diamond and was engraved with the letter "M". Maximilian hoped that Mary would always think of him when she looked at it and not fall in love with another man.
To this day, the tradition has not lost its popularity and is a symbol of the union of lovers.
An engagement ring is a piece of jewellery presented by a man to his beloved at the time of her proposal.
What does a diamond engagement ring mean?
There was a time when an engagement ring was not just given as a gift but represented a real financial commitment to the bride-to-be's family. In the past, young girls were supported by their parents before marriage and by their husbands afterwards.
The engagement ring had two functions at once:
- by displaying the jewellery, the young girl could show her betrothed status.
- the ring was a symbol of the social status and wealth of the future spouse.
Nowadays, dainty diamond engagement rings for her are a romantic attribute that signifies love, purity, faithfulness and sincerity in the relationship.
How to choose a diamond engagement ring?
First of all, don't rely on advice from friends and parents. It's best to be observant and find out from the girl what type of ring she likes in general. There are several ways to choose the right engagement ring for a bride.
- Go to the jewellery shop together and see the ring options on the counter. Let her try the engagement ring she's interested in on her finger and then ask the seller for the size.
- Find a jewellery magazine and browse through it together. Pay attention to special diamond engagement rings that will pique the girl's interest and ask her what criteria she uses in making her choice.
- You can visit pages of websites that offer jewellery together. Afterwards, go through the history of visits and look at the options she has looked at several times. Ask her mother, sister or friend about your bride's preferences.
When you find out what type of engagement ring the girl likes, it's worth taking note of the following nuances:
- Decide on the colour of the gold in the piece.
- Choose a style - modern or classic;
- Decide whether it will be a delicate diamond engagement ring or a piece with other gemstones. To do this, you need to calculate your finances and the characteristics of the zodiac sign under which the bride was born.

How not to downplay the engagement ring, but also how not to overshadow the engagement ring after the wedding? There's a double-edged sword here. You don't want to hide such beauty in a drawer.
- Before the wedding
Before the wedding, a girl wears an engagement ring on her ring finger. And what hand - it already depends on the geography of its residents. Thus, in Ukraine, it is the right hand, while in Germany - left.
- After the wedding
There are a lot of options here. The most widespread is when the engagement ring is on the right hand and the engagement ring is on the left. It's comfortable, beautiful and doesn't hurt either of them. But some take the ring off, wearing it only on their engagement anniversary. The bride keeps it in a box for her future children as a family heirloom.
