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.
Some replicas are styled as more antique diamond engagement rings. These rings have an everlasting quality and symbolize tradition and heritage. The recent engagement of Camilla Parker Bowles in February of 2005 featured such an antique engagement ring. The platinum ring has an emerald-cut center diamond with three diamond baguettes on each side. This ring originally belonged to the Queen Mother and is believed to be valued at over $1 million.
Small diamonds set in the platinum bands is gaining popularity, however most of the designs for men do not feature any precious gems. Tungsten and titanium are also being used quite frequently these days, since they can withstand a great deal of wear and tear along with being easy to carve and engrave. Depending on the personality of your boyfriend, there are various designs you can go for. Celtic and paisley designs have made a recent comeback, which feature styled crosses and knots being carved all around the wedding band. Such a wedding ring design is antique looking and gives a wonderful sense of old-worldliness to the ring.
