A wedding ring is a symbol of love, and just as a ring has no beginning or end, it symbolises eternity. Love is eternal and a wedding ring is the symbol given to seal that love between husband and wife. What better way to show this than with a diamond wedding ring. Some couples prefer a simpler design when it comes to wedding bands. This is often seen as another symbolic attribute: love should be simple and without a second agenda.
The wedding ring is typically worn on the left ring finger of the wearer. This is because of an age-old belief that the left ring finger has the shortest vein to the heart. This vein was even named vena amoris, meaning vein of love. As cute and touching as that is, it unfortunately is not actually the shortest vein to the heart.
