The tradition of the wedding ring is said to date back to the ancient Egyptians, who exchanged rings made of hemp or reeds as a symbol of their eternal love (although those degradable rings wouldn’t last an eternity). The custom was picked up by invading Greeks and later Romans, as was the custom of wearing the ring on the fourth finger of the left hand. The Romans believed there was a "vena amoris," Latin for "vein of love," running from the left ring finger to the heart. Over the centuries, wedding rings went on to symbolize a transaction of property, a union with the Holy Trinity, or sinful decadence, depending on the prevailing attitudes about the purpose of marriage. Wedding rings have come full circle to once again symbolize lifelong love and faithfulness. Find the wedding ring that celebrates your love within the vast inventory listed on eBay.
