Ring of Engagement
Engagement bands began in the Ancient Egypt as the circle was used to symbolize a never ending cycle and the space in it as a gateway. Betrothal rings were used during Roman times, but weren’t generally revived in the Western world until the 13th century. Roman men gave engagement rings that included a small key. Rings are placed on the fourth finger (or ring finger) because Ancient Egyptians believed that it contained a vein that lead to the heart (vena amoris). In second century B.C.E., the Roman bride was given two rings, a gold one which she wore in public, and one made of iron, which she can wear at home while doing house chores. Greeks may have been the first to create engagement rings, but to them they were known as betrothal rings. The rings however were not required to be given before marriage, unlike traditional engagement rings of today.
