*This Ring Can Be Resized.

The tradition of exchanging rings between committed lovers can be traced back to Ancient Egypt. The circle was a sacred symbol that represented eternity so rings were a revered object. Braided hemp, reeds, or even leather was constructed into bands and worn on the left hand ring finger. It was believed that a crucial vein, the Vena Amoris, ran from this finger directly to the heart. In ancient Greece, lover’s rings were commonly signet rings that depicted Eros, the god of love and attraction. The Romans were the first to associate these type of rings with actual marriage (not just love), and since then the tradition has strongly remained. 

This fully hallmarked wedding band was originally commissioned during the Victorian Era. The Victorians were extremely sentimental and although it was not commonly spoken of publically, love was at the forefront of life. A wedding band was the ideal item to embody this tenderness. It was considered good luck if your wedding band was dropped during the ceremony, so all evil spirits or negativity could be shaken out. Perfectly worn 22k yellow gold and smooth clean edges make up this ring, and probably a lot of love too.
