The tradition of exchanging rings goes deep into the past. It appeared at the dawn of civilization. Even then, the ring was worn on the ring finger, because it was believed that a special artery connects it to the heart. Although the doctors did not find the love artery, the ring on the ring finger can still tell if the heart is free.
It seems familiar to us that the wedding rings are gold. But this was not always the case; in ancient times, lovers could even put cane rings on each other’s fingers. Over time, the rings began to be made from more durable materials. At first, rings made of iron and bronze were popular, and eventually, gold became a hit.
We have made a selection of examples of the most unconventional solutions for an engagement ring, and found a win-win way to breathe a spark of unusualness into the most classic and standard form.
