A Guide to the Perfect Engagement RingsThe engagement ring is a special symbol for two people to share. It represents commitment, love and dedication to one another and represents a promise before marriage that they will share their lives together. Whether you decide to invest in a modern ring or a more traditional ring, this will represent the love and commitment you have between you and your loved one. The engagement ring is typically worn on the third finger on your left hand. It is believed that the ancient Romans began this tradition as this finger contains a vein that leads directly to the heart, calling this the ‘vena amoris’ or ‘the vein of love’. Engagement rings have a rich history with a very special meaning to people. Choosing your perfect engagement ring is a special way to begin the rest of your life with your loved one before marriage. Engagement rings are a huge, life-long decision, and with all the options available to you, it can be a confusing and overwhelming process. Traditionally, engagement rings have centred themselves around diamonds, however, as of late, other colourful gemstones have become more popular within the engagement ring community. Michael Jones Jeweller can guide you through their beautifully hand-picked favourites to inspire and help you in making that big decision.
