A wedding ring is an important and significant part of a marriage ceremony. The exchanging of rings is a symbolic expression of the permanent flow of love and the couple’s promise to each other, and the circular nature of the ring itself is expressive nor a start or an end of a couple’s love. But where do they come from? Where did this wedding tradition originate?

The Origin of Wedding Rings
The Egyptians were the first to use the wedding rings. They wore the wedding ring on their left hand, as they strongly believed that the vein in the left hand went straight to the heart. Romans also adopted the culture of gifting wedding rings and they were the first to have their rings engraved, which is also a style we have adopted at Orla James that you can check out here.
Around the year 860 the Christians started following this tradition and used intricately designed bands, after the popularity of the wedding ring spread across multiple cultures and religions worldwide. In the 12th century, Pope Innocent the Third decreed that all marriages celebrated under the Catholic Church must include a ring as part of the ceremony, although initially just for the woman. Nowadays both men and women now show their commitment and love for each other by exchanging rings on their wedding day, and as such we sell his and hers rings here at Orla James, both with a wide range and extensive choices unlike most high-street jewellers. After a huge surge in the 19th century, wedding rings have become a popular tradition in the western world, and they are seen as the most popular expression of commitment and a true token of eternal love in global cultures, epitomising unity and harmony.
Trending Wedding Rings
We at Orla James understand that style is one of the most important factors in picking the ring that is representative of you and your partner, if not THE most. So we’re taking it upon ourselves to update you all on some of the most popular wedding ring styles, as and when they come to light. This gives you the opportunity to decide if recent trends are the perfect fit, or if you’re going to break the mould with a ring that screams you!
Most recently traditional gold wedding rings have become popular again, although platinum wedding rings remain as the most treasured, but identical metal palladium is also making it’s mark amongst brides and grooms, sharing multiple properties possessed by titanium rings. The antique look of rose gold is also making a significant return for Summer 2014, and at we at Orla James have noticed a significant amount of orders placed on rose gold wedding rings.
