Did you know that the custom of wearing wedding bands can be traced back nearly 6,000 years!?! A wedding band is a sign of commitment. If you have ever been to a wedding, you have probably heard the officiant give some description of why married couples wear wedding bands, but we thought it couldn’t hurt to mention it here again.
A wedding band is so much more than just a piece of jewelry. It is a promise that is worn in a visible place to let the entire world know that you are committed to someone else.
Wedding rings are the physical manifestation of a promise between two people who commit their lives together in marriage.
The wedding ring is made of precious metal to signify the depth of the promise. It is a sign that this is something significant. It is made to be an enduring symbol of love.
Wedding bands are round, which is to say, they have no end, signifying the permanent nature of the marriage relationship.
Wedding rings are worn on the left hand, closest to the heart, where the flame of love is kept alive.
