Interesting Facts about the Wedding Band

Recreation & Leisure

Do you have a high school sweetheart you’ve been with for years? Have you already fallen on bended knee and given yourself up to them completely, having offered up your hand in marriage while asking for theirs in return? If so, you’ve certainly been looking at wedding bands in Michigan, hoping to find the right one to place upon your love’s finger. You’ve got a price range and, hopefully, you know your partner’s tastes well enough to pick the right style of wedding ring. If you’re at this point in your relationship, but you’re not sure how to go about deciding on a particular style, here are some fun bits of information you can impart while you and your partner shop for that perfect band. 

Significance of the Wedding Band

The obvious first significance of the wedding band is as a physical manifestation of one’s love and devotion to a partner. Worn on the hand, it becomes easily seen to passersby and anyone in close proximity. It’s believed that the first wedding bands were used in ancient Egypt over 4,000 years ago and were seen as circles of eternity, a visible message that the wearer had given their love to someone else eternally. Many of these early rings weren’t made of metal, however, but rather made out of braided hemp or reeds. Since hemp and reeds didn’t last for long, these rings were eventually produced using bone, leather, or ivory. This is how the value of a ring began to take importance as it was believed that the more expensive the material used, the more love the giver supposedly had for the receiver. The material used was also a way of determining one’s status and wealth.

Why Are They Worn on the Fourth Finger?

There are three very intriguing theories as to why the ring is worn not only on the left hand, but on the fourth finger (now simply called “the ring finger”):

The Vein of Love – Put forth by both the ancient Egyptians and the Romans. Both societies believed that there was a special vein in the left hand that led to the heart; a ring on that hand was symbolically tied to the vein, and subsequently, directly to the heart itself. While this has been scientifically proven to be false, it remains a lovely idea worth repeating purely for the telling.

Respect for the Holy Trinity – Early Christian marriages had the priest placing the ring on the third finger, tapping the ring against the thumb (“In the name of the Father…”), the forefinger (“…the Son…”), and then finally the ring finger (“…and the Holy Spirit”). After the blessing and the amen, the priest would place the finger on the ring finger, sealing the marriage.

Logical Lack of Use – While this one makes the most amount of sense from a logical perspective, it’s less romantic than the previous two. Because the majority of the world is right-handed, it’s believed that putting a wedding ring on the left hand would protect the ring, both from damage and from being tarnished. Since the left hand would be used less than the right, the choice of using the ring finger is based on how often it gets used in relation to the other fingers as well, which is not much at all.

Shopping for wedding bands in Michigan can wear a couple out, but with enough entertaining anecdotes about the history of the wedding band, you and your partner can certainly make the shopping experience a more enjoyable one while you seek out that perfect ring.
