About 14k Gold Band

Simplicity itself, the 14k gold band will never go out of style. The ancient Egyptians wore wedding bands on the third finger of the left hand as a symbol of love—the vein in that finger was reputed to run directly to the heart. For the Romans, however, the wedding band was usually made of iron and symbolized ownership of the bride and the financial transaction between the two families. Some traditions related to the 14k gold plain wedding band are surprisingly recent, however. The practice of men’s wedding rings and double-ring ceremonies emerged in the 1940s as a result of a massive marketing campaign by the American jewelry industry. Double-ring ceremonies comprised only 15 percent of weddings before the Great Depression. By the late ‘40s, and up to the present day, 80 percent of all weddings are double-ring. You can find a 14k solid gold band on eBay for bride or groom, as well as bejeweled 14k gold band engagement rings in an infinite variety. For bride or groom, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful and elegant 14k gold band.
