Diamond Engagement Rings
Which diamond shape is for you?
Diamond Engagement RingsThroughout the Western World, diamond engagement rings are traditionally worn on the third finger of the left-hand, indicating a woman's or -more and more frequently - a man's engagement to be married.
History of the Engagement RingThe diamond engagement ring itself, undoubtedly dates back to classical times and the placing of the engagement ring on the third finger of the left hand due to the folklore belief that the 'vein of love' runs from the wedding finger straight to the heart. The design and fashion of diamond rings has varied and developed hugely throughout history and today's tradition and favour of a solitaire diamond engagement ring is the result of an extremely successful twentieth century marketing campaign by De Beers.
The tradition for using a diamond in an engagement ring is because a diamond is the most enduring, beautiful and certainly expensive of precious gems. In terms of the metal used, 18ct. Gold, palladium and especially platinum are generally recommended for the manufacture of the engagement ring because of their inherently higher value and because these metals are much more durable than other precious metals like silver. More and more at DiamondGeezer.com, Palladium engagement rings are becoming popular, because of its lower cost and higher strength and a pure whiteness that white gold can only aspire to.
