Engagement Ring

The presentation of the engagement ring dates back to ancient times when gold rings were exchanged for currency.  A potential groom wold offer his bride-to-be gold rings as a partial payment for her hand in marriage.  In ancient Egypt the ring was placed on the fourth finger of the left hand because the "vena amorus" or "vein of love" was thought to begin there and to to the heart.

In 1477 the Archduke Maximillian of Austria presented Mary of Burgandy with a gold and diamond ring upon their engagement.  At that time, the diamond was though to be a magic stone that was create in "flames of love." The tradition of giving a diamond engagement ring was only for the very wealthy until the nineteenth century when an abundance of diamonds was discovered in South Africa.

Although many precious and semiprecious stones are use in the engagement ring today, diamonds still remain the most popular.  After all, they are a girl's best friend.
