Wedding band sets are rings that are often made of metal. If a person is wearing a wedding band, it is indication that the wearer is married. Depending on the local culture, the ring is usually worn on the base of the right or the left ring finger. Wedding rings are a tradition that has been going on for many centuries. It has been manifested in the wedding customs of many different nations and religious groups. They come in many forms, but traditionally the ring is made of gold or some other precious metal. Wearing wedding rings day and night is common for some people, thus causing an indentation in the skin that remains visible even when the ring is taken off. A sign of their cultural importance is that wedding rings are permitted to be worn by prison inmates and their visitors.
The origin of wedding band sets
It is believed that the first examples of wedding rings were found in ancient Egypt. Egypt viewed the circle of a ring as a symbol of eternity. The ring is the symbol of the never-ending love between the couple. This was also the origin of the practice of wearing the wedding ring on the ring finger of the left hand. The Egyptians believed the finger housed a special vein that was connected directly to the heart.
The common style of wedding rings
