Much is said and written about the correct way to wear engagement and wedding rings. The fact is, of course, that different cultures and traditions have their own ’correct’ way and these change as years go by.
Some wedding ring traditions
In many western countries the wedding ring is worn on the third finger or ring finger, of the left hand. This tradition developed from the time of the ancient Greeks who believed that there was a vein running directly from that finger to the heart; it was called the ‘vena amoris’ or ‘vein of love’. It was therefore considered appropriate for the wedding ring, a symbol of love and devotion, to be worn there. The tradition has continued despite the lack of any scientific evidence for the existence of the ‘vena amoris’.
Couples looking to make a lifelong commitment to one another will need to find the right engagement rings to symbolize their future union and love for one another. When groom goes to look for the perfect piece to present to the love of his life, he should do his research before he sets off for the store or makes an online purchase.
Shane Co. offers breathtakingly beautiful rings for any bride’s taste and style, so the groom will have his pick of engagement rings that are sure to please. The groom should have a solid idea of what type of ring his future fiancee will appreciate. Whether she has an eye for the modern simplicity of band and a small and subtle diamond, something much more grand or something with a more antique feel to it, Shane Co. has something to please everyone. Customers will enjoy the peace of having a lifetime warranty on their engagement rings at Shane Co., as well as direct diamond importer prices and upgrading a diamond for a reasonable price.
In the world of band-style rings for men, you will find traditional “tried and true” materials like silver, gold, and platinum. All three of these precious metals can be both pricey and damage over time. However, in recent times there has been a movement toward alternative metals that are tougher and most times less expensive than their traditional counterparts. One such metal is Tungsten Carbide. Although this metal started out in the mechanical industry, it is quickly becoming one of the hottest new metals in jewelry making today. Tungsten Carbide is considered an 8-9 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale, only to be surpassed by the diamond at 10.
Although a significant majority of people believe that jewelry is something that should only be worn by females. That is not necessarily true.
In most cases, the source of the problem is not simply men wearing jewelry. Usually, it is men wearing tasteless, inappropriate jewelry. Thankfully, there are some easy to follow steps that can guide you in your process of choosing appropriate diamond accessories, including rings.

…cdziuba! Who wins the men’s wedding band for telling us this story of corniness:
I’m a church organist by profession, and usually have a wedding or two to play every weekend. I’ve seen it all, and love to snark on corny vows.
The reading for this particular cornball wedding was from Solomon about how “My love is like a gazelle”. Well, the doofus groom and bride decided to recite their vows without reading them, they were original vows they made up. I might note that the bride and groom each weighed well over 300 lbs.
The groom ended his vows with “You are my gazelle”.
Weirdly, and cornily enough, she ended her vows with “You are my gazelle.”
I’d probably leave the wedding after the first mention of a gazelle. Thanks for participating everyone and keep posted for our next contest!
