We are going to tell you a fun fact… The first woman to wear an engagement ring was María de Borgoña, wife of Emperor Archiduque Maximiliano of Austria, who was given a ring with diamonds in 1477. This is how engagement rings began to be used. They are worn on the ring finger of the left hand.
Wedding rings, on the other hand, are an older tradition. In fact, in ancient egypt they were worn to signify businesses and commitment. In other words, if a woman wore a ring, she could not be sought by others. This was the way to show that her and her couple were committed.
Many stories exist about wedding rings, but all of them revolve around the union of two hearts, who seal their love with a symbol.
For example, the Romans decided that a vein named Vena Amoris existed and according to them, this vein travels from the ring finger to the heart. However, here in Colombia and in many other countries, couples put the ring on the ring finger, which is the fourth finger on the hand. Thus, everything varies depending on the culture and the traditions. The truth is that there is no golden rule, the idea is that you, as a couple, feel pleased with your decision and wear it how you choose.
