The popular engagement ring of the modern age had its beginning as recent as the 19th century and wasn`t always a symbol of undying affection, it was more or less the first part payment of the bride price to be paid to the bride`s family but handed over and worn by the bride. It was a kind of insurance provided for the woman, in case the prospective partner which was always the man at that time disbands the marriage thereby compromising the woman`s virtue and appeal to other men.
The Three Stone Rings or the Trinity ring: this is a ring design with its own romantic history, it is believed that each stone in the three stone ring symbolizes the past, present and future of the time in which a couple has spent together and the ring would bind them together for all eternity. The ring design is that of an immaculate platinum band with three exquisite gemstones; one at the middle with two place strategically by the sides. The gemstones are usually mad of diamonds but you are allowed to customize yours into three different types of gemstones if you so desire.
The true meaning and symbol of the engagement ring started shining through in the 20th century, when men gave their fiancées a band that symbolized their love and intentions for a marriage union, the engagement ring signified that she had been taken, out of limits and ready to be married to her true love and it was placed on the fourth finger of the left hand, for that finger was believed to have a vein running through it which came directly from the heart therefore symbolizing the finger as a "heart finger". Earlier rings could just be a piece of silver or an iron band without any adornment, which the woman inserts into her fourth finger on her left hand, this was the practice for a short time till commercial rings and the media took over the engagement scene.
