History of the Engagement Ring

A Long History, In a Nutshell

We love sharing the Orlando area’s hottest engagement ring trends, but now we’re taking it back to the beginning. The history of the engagement ring originates from a Roman custom in which wives wore rings attached to small keys, signifying their husband’s ownership. During the Middle Ages stemmed the rise of “posy rings,” which were bands engraved with romantic poems and phrases.  Even back then, they were worn on the left-hand ring finger because it had a vein that runs directly to the heart.  In 1477, the first diamond ring was produced and that ignited a trend of diamond engagement rings being produced.  A diamond’s purity and elegance now symbolize the depths of a man’s commitment to the woman he loves.
