Wedding rings are the jewelry symbols people wear on their fingers to tell the world they are married. These romantic rings have been around for many centuries. It was once thought there was a vein leading from the left ring finger to the heart, so that is how it was decided they would be worn on this particular finger. Scientific and medical advancements have since proven this theory to be wrong, but the tradition still lingers and people all over the world still uphold the tradition.
There are many kinds of wedding rings for a couple to choose from. Women’s wedding rings are sometimes purchased along with the engagement ring. This is referred to as a bridal set and it eliminates any gap or improper alignment among the two rings. Since women wear both the wedding band and the engagement ring at the same time, it is very important the two line up perfectly without any spacing in between.
