A little history about wedding ring

The Alliance, a symbol

If the ring finger, the fourth finger of our hand, takes its name from the ring that dresses it, then this is an irrefutable proof of the greatness and the strong significance of this thousand-year-old jewel.   

The Antique Alliance, its history

It is in the time of Ancient Greece, that the wedding ring, also called wedding band finds its place on the finger of love. The Greek doctors thought that a vein, "the vein of love", connected the heart to the ring finger of the left hand. Responsible for the feeling that is love, it was therefore necessary to protect it at all costs.

It was with a ring first made of ivory or leather, that it was. Traditionally, only the woman received a ring on her wedding day.

Today it is the ceremony of the double ring that is customary: the spouses offer each other as they exchange their rings.

The wedding ring, a precious jewel

More and more precious, first silver wedding rings, yellow gold wedding rings or white gold wedding rings, platinum wedding rings or diamond wedding rings, the shape of a wedding ring remains and will always remain the circle. 

Without beginning or end, the circle is the symbol of infinity, and gives this ring the symbolism of an endless love.

As each love is unique, the ring that we never part with must be too...
