Wearing jewelry during the engagement and on the wedding day is a tradition rooted for centuries in Western culture. Discover everything about this “ritual” of great importance and emotional significance.
The engagement ring
Everything indicates that the first diamond engagement ring was given by Archduke Maximilian of Austria to Maria, Duchess of Burgundy, in 1477. Quickly, the tradition of presenting the future wife with an engagement ring grew, first among royalty and, later, among general population. The solitaire is considered the maximum and most popular symbol among engagement rings and tradition says that it should be used on the ring finger of the left hand.
The wedding band
The word alliance (wedding band) comes from the Latin alligare, which means a relationship of proximity, of union. In the context of marriage, wedding bands celebrate an agreement of complicity, love, and fidelity. The Egyptians will have been the first to exchange wedding bands. For them, the ring was a very powerful symbol, since it is a circle that has no beginning or end and that represents eternal life and immortal love. In Ancient Egypt, it was believed that the vein of the third finger of the left hand ran directly to the heart, this being one of the reasons that made this finger the one chosen to wear the wedding ring.
And because on the wedding day the bride has to be stunning, there are other pieces of jewelry, in addition to the engagement ring and the wedding ring, which can be present and contribute to an even more intense shine on that date. Simplicity is the watchword. As such, when choosing the earrings, necklace, or bracelet it is necessary to consider the cut and design of the dress, as well as the selected hairstyle.
For the groom
It is in the exquisite selection of details that lies the great opportunity for the groom to reveal his personality and style. From the watch to the pen that will seal the marriage commitment, through the choice of cufflinks, the wedding etiquette also requires a thoughtful choice between tie, bow or a scarf.
For the Father
It is a tradition, the signing of a commitment, but, above all, one of the most emotional and remarkable days in the life of any Father. As serene as it may seem, the wedding day is a moment as special for him as for the engaged.
For the Mother
Many years ago, the mother also dreamed of this day: of her “and they were happy ever after”, in a princess dress, next to her prince charming. Today, in the countdown to the big day, the mother relives the memory of a dream come true and guarantees the perfection of every detail in the realization of a new dream.
The date is set, the time of the ceremony is set and the place chosen. The countdown to the big day begins. The godparents will be the main witnesses of the celebration of love and the bearers of good stories to tell and remember.
