Engagement Ring Designs

The engagement ring design should be a primary consideration when shopping for an engagement ring. There are a wide variety of designs to choose from so take your time and check out all of the options.

Engagement Ring is a betrothal gift to the prospective bride after she accepts the marriage proposal. Worn on the ring finger of the left hand by the woman, it is a sign of love and life long commitment. Engagement Ring Designs have varied greatly over the years. Generally it is a band of gold with a mounted diamond or gem. A

change in the trends have other alternatives replacing the gold, such as the silver and the platinum band being equally popular. Diamond as an engagement ring gained ground in the Western countries more because of extensive advertisement campaign by de Beers, world's leading diamond producer.

The origin of the Engagement Ring can be traced to the Fourth Lateran Council presided by Pope Innocent III in 1215. The Pope declared a longer waiting period between the engagement and the marriage. Plain rings of gold, silver or iron were used at the earliest.

Engagement Rings mounted with stones
One traditional pattern had six stones mounted on the ring, on the left were the birthstones of the bride and the bride's parents while on the right were that of the groom's. Similar four stone mounted rings were familiar. These token rings had a channel within which could treasure a lock of hair of the suitor.

The First Recorded Diamond Engagement Ring
The first recorded diamond engagement ring was presented by the Archduke Maximillian of Austria to Mary of Burgundy as a betrothal gift in 1477.
