The Wedding Band – Symbolism and Significance

The wedding band has been around for a long, long time. Back in the time of the Romans, a wedding ring was worn on the left hand ring finger because there was thought to be a vein there (called the “Vena Aromis” or Vein of Love) directly connected to the heart.

Symbolically, a ring is a circle with no beginning or end–a natural representation of infinity. Like eternal love, it goes on and on. There is also a sense of oneness, wholeness to the circle of the ring which reflects another level of meaning.

When a wedding band is custom designed, you decide its symbolism and significance. That means that every aspect of the ring can represent your love in its own unique way. Below is a custom design wedding band with wide floral design and intermittent diamonds (which symbolize faithfulness, love, purity, innocence).
