Engagement rings are said to date back as far as the Egyptians, as they were discovered buried with metal wire around the third finger of their left hands, as we wear the engagement ring today.
The Engagement Ring: The ultimate symbol of love and commitment has become a fashion statement as they have evolved through the ages from a simple adornment to spectacular pieces of craftsmanship using Diamonds & Gemstones to add to the various metals used including 18ct White Gold and Platinum.
In the Ancient past, as mentioned above the Egyptians are the first known to wear engagement rings as they were found buried with wire adornments on their left finger of their left hands.
The Egyptians believed that the third finger on the left hand has the vein to the heart. This was then adopted by the Romans calling it: ‘vena amoris’ – Latin for ‘the vein of love’
Wikipedia…From the Middle Ages onwards… The mid-7th century Visigothic Code required “that when the ceremony of betrothal has been performed, …, and the ring shall have been given or accepted as a pledge, although nothing may have been committed to writing, the promise shall, under no circumstances, be broken.”
The Full history as recorded on Wikipedia can be seen here.

I had the freedom to design my Platinum Wedding Band with the Grand Diamond team. When I received the ring it was exactly what I wanted and my wife was thrilled as well. Just want to say thanks for the great service.

A huge thank you to Candice and Leandro at Grand Diamonds for helping me with my disaster of an engagement ring that I got from another company. Grand Diamonds remanufactured the ring to perfection.
