National Wedding Ring Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to the tradition of exchanging wedding rings. This memorable event is one of the most significant in the life of a married couple. Celebrated annually on February 3rd.
The tradition of exchanging wedding rings is common in different cultures of the world. The exchange of rings symbolizes the spiritual connection between a man and a woman that occurs at marriage. There is evidence that in ancient Egypt, oral exchanges of words were adopted, reinforcing the formation of a new couple. The tradition of wearing rings to show that a person is married originated with the ancient Greeks and Romans.
The style and appearance of rings has changed almost every century. In the 12th century, Irish rings were popular, with the image of a heart between two connected tassels. In the 15th century, “Posy” rings became popular, on which lines from poems or love poems were embossed.
The modern market offers a large selection of rings: budget, premium and precious, embossed, adorned with diamonds and many others. Everyone will definitely be able to choose an option to their taste.
- In England, there is a ban on wearing rings for doctors and nurses. This is due to the fact that the space under the ring is difficult to disinfect, and it can be very difficult to remove the product from the finger.
- Bankrupt businessmen in many US states pay their debts with valuables and property, but the wedding ring is allowed not to be sold.
- The smallest engagement ring was created for Mary Stuart in the 16th century, as she married at the age of two. The product was made to order for her little finger.
