Although nobody knows exactly when the first wedding rings appeared, we do know ancient Egyptian brides were buried with rings and ancient Greeks and Romans made iron wedding rings for their future wives.

The idea of wearing the ring on the third finger of the left hand is believed to stem from the vein there which has a direct link to the heart.

Today the wedding ring is given as a symbol of commitment, love and respect, with the circular shape representing unity and eternal love.
